    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone had a list of the most used Melbourne VHF/UHF repeaters?

    I will be in Melbourne for a week :)

    These days, good question. I'm a bit our of the Melbourne loop these days, now that I've been in Bendigo for 8 1/2 years. So what brings you to Melbourne?

    The F1 GP - I come down every year :)

    I'm a petrol head... bikes, cars, boats, planes... if it races I watch it
    :)

    Only thing that annoys me is all the car <-> pit lane radio chatter is on encrypted digital nets.... I'd love to be able to listen in!

    Ahh, OK. I never even know when it's on, not really that interested in it myself. :)

    Fair enough. My races don't involve engines, though some do involve wheels. :D
    Actually, I tell a lie. The pumper and tanker events do use engines, but only to move water, not the truck itself. :)

    BUGGER! :D

    I follow Indycar myself. Used to follow F1 more closely, but it is more difficult to now (not as much time to follow both).

    I love nascar as well, I think its fascinating!

    I record everything so I can watch it when I get the time :> There is so
    much on these days :)

    Do you race up the concrete towers? I've seen the guys that use ladders
    with hooks on them that they climb up one ladder lenngth, grab the ladder
    and hook on to the next level and so on? Those guys are crazy!!!

    No, not like those, ours is a 20 foot high movable platform, but yes I do race up ladders to the top of them. :)
