As I literally get a few days notice to visit clients (I had one week to organise a two week Eastern European tour), I can't say for sure if I can make it to this meet. But rest assured, as soon as I find out that I'm free I'll be on the first flight there and partying hard. I'll bring the two machines that get voted the most :)

In my heart, yes! In real life, I still need to solve a couple of problems at work and home. But I am confident... :-) ... fingers crossed... that I too... (to be continued) :-) :-)

Looking at my arrangements...gonna bring the big yellow van to sleep in so wondering where I can park up? Not quite sure where the venue is etc. Is there a drive/street I can park on. I don't need anything as have power, water, toilet etc just need somewhere safe/quiet to hang. Walking distance of venue would be good in case beer is involved lol. Cheers :-)

Obviously if addresses are involved better by PM :-)

The UK meet will be the first trip for my new travel rig.

 

The Pelican case 1605 to carry my well worn, well loved Lasonic TRC-920

 

Attached File  DSCN0209.JPG   43.36K   0 downloadsAttached File  DSCN0216.JPG   35.68K   0 downloads

 

This case has been outfitted with foam inserts that hold the radio snugly

 

Attached File  case open.jpg   75.71K   2 downloads

 

 I also created a letter for the inside for all the baggage personnel that will be opening this case to inspect it, asking them to please put the radio back in properly. It's in 4 different languages, English, Italian, German and Chinese 

 

Attached File  DSCN0212.JPG   38.03K   1 downloadsAttached File  DSCN0211.JPG   49.6K   1 downloads

 

Under the radio is a brand new package of D cells and my Blu-Fuz strap

 

Attached File  DSCN0213.JPG   87.01K   1 downloads

 

I also bought these shock drop detector to go on the case.

 

Attached File  DSCN0214.JPG   93.71K   1 downloadsAttached File  DSCN0215.JPG   63.41K   1 downloadsAttached File  DSCN0217.JPG   63.92K   1 downloadsAttached File  DSCN0218.JPG   45.29K   1 downloads

 

I'm really trying to make this a no brainer. I know they need to open the case to have a look and I don't have a problem with that, but when I flew to Italy, I had this same radio in a large suitcase, encased in the same foam, just multiple layers. I don't know if it was the inspectors at LAX in Los Angeles, or in Brussels that opened it and then wadded up the foam and stuffed the radio in anyway they could as opposed to putting it back they way it was, but of course it showed up with one speaker grill punched in. 

 

I put the shock drop detector badge right by the handle, hoping that they will realize it's semi traceable. The case will also be insured. Depending on the cost of insurance, I might insure it for a stupid price in hopes of discouraging otherwise sh*ty service. 

 

The last thing I need to buy are TSA locks.
