P.S. In your very first post here you mentioned that you had been involved with radios ever since college except for 2 years "playing James Bond". care to elaborate...?
I could but I would have to shoot you!

Ok I will tell you but you must promise not to tell a sole!

I worked as a technical consultant for a very large private investigations company.
My main role was technical surveilance, bugging, debugging, video, CCTV etc.
Testing and trying all the gadgets, so more of a Q than a 007!

When I was not doing that I did some of the "on the ground" work.
This included car following, foot following eveything your average private eye would do!!

The company also did body guard and close protection work.
So I was also involved in that side, inc driving duties.

It was a great 2 years of my life.
Learnt a lot, saw a huge amount that you only see on TV also got to work with and for some very famous people.
All the guy's I worked with in the company were if ex or serving "Hereford Rambling Assoc" of the "Poole Paddling Club"!!

Get me drunk sometime and I'll tell you my "war" stories!!

But remember you did not here any of this from me!!

Regards

Your secret's safe with me.

Cool - now, in my fantasy, I see you springing from your rib and unzipping your drysuit to reveal your tux. You move stealthily along the pontoon, crouching low as you peer over the harbour wall before springing up onto the wall, rushing over to the villain and disarming him with a quick flick of your wrist. Then you grab your ICOM handheld and whisper into the handset. You saunter into the nearest hotel and take the lift to the seventh floor. Everyone knows this is where heaven awaits...

Oh it's all too much for me. I'm just going for a lie down...

Well funny you should mention that!!
Whilst in Cork last week I had to attend the Admirals dinner.
I had to get back to my hotel and get into my suit.
The quickest way to do this was by boat!!

So I flew across the harbour in a 7.4m Redbay (at about 35mph)
Shower, shave and into my black suit then back to the Rib.
I got some great looks from the guy's and girls sitting out side my hotel as I ran down the gangway, dived into the Rib and shot off at break neck speed!

I came very close to putting my dry suit over the tops and doing the strip of bit as I arraived back!

All the time the dum dee dee dee dum playing in my ear's

"so do you prefer blondes or brunetts?"
"I don't mind as long as the collors and cuffs match"

Are well back to me day job!

Regards

"Oh behave!"

This will make you laugh.
My nick name was for a while Chocice (and still is used in some circles)

Why? becuase one night in a pub my then girlfriend said "your a PI but your not as good looking as Magnum so I must be a chocice!!!"
Nice if we were on our own but with a large group of work mates and friends no way I was going to get away with that!

Regards

Jon, how in a very simple......

way could one determine if ones office / home / personal space was in any way bugged ? I've seen all these great gadgets you can buy to bug people, spy on your nextdoor neighbours wife in the shower etc, however, what about determining if some loathsome creature was bugging you, particularly in the office ?
