I guess that is true.
Having been at Earls Court for so long we knew were everything was.
It will take time to find anll the good spots to eat, drink and be merry!.
Found a great Indian in Brick lane and the Chinese in the Custom House Hotel was spot on too.
We stay in Canary Wharfe, lots there but it seems to revolve around the workers there, shutting ealry in some cases.
Not good when the show open till 9pm on Thursday's.
What a no brainer that is!

Regards

Supprised you didnt shoot home rather than stay up there all the time being so close as you are, i drive up to Cannary Wharf every day and it takes just over an hour each way.

Meant to say hello but you were talking to some woman when i saw you, and cleverly ICOM had something to stop DSC trasmitting as Lord Davies and myself made it a mission to see how many we could set of at the show

It was suggested that we travel each day!
After much consideration it was clear it was better to stay.
They are long days at the show then 1-2 hours in the morning and again at night was felt to be a bit much!

Some woman? me? you will get me a bad or should I say worse name!

Yes we modified all the units to only just talk to each other.
Ofcom a very hot on this front.
Mind you if you put a bit of co-ax in any of them it was enough grunt to alarm every radio at the show!
Well so I was lead to understand, would not catch us doing anything like that!

Sorry I missed you, was she good looking?

Regards

Suppose it depends what you call good looking John ? in my opinion she was ok looking and you seemed to be having fun chatting with her.

We did try the ICOM DSC to no avail, however we did manage to set of a few others on other stalls who had not been so vigillant, i dont think i'd ever seen sales men move so fast in my life :-)
