Re: London Protests

You will know where they are, as they are the usual ‘Crusty Rent- a- mob ‘. You’ll smell ‘em!😆😂 I am an avid fan of Democracy. The freedom to do as you see fit. That does NOT include vandalism and disruptive protest. The law is the law. totally agree, but look how well someone has looked into where...

Okay. From what I understand from the internet that is a handheld ham radio will transmit and receive from a radius of about five miles.
