  1. Isn't that the truth MEOB. Ive never seen such poor management when Universal bought Lakelse Air. Everything was shoot from the hip decisions, non rev flights were way too common and the far fetched dreams included picking up space shuttle parts with Long Rangers. Lakelse Air was a nice, profitable company with an excellent management team and group of pilots and engineers before they were acquired by Universal. Unfortunately the old owner got into some financial trouble with his construction company and had to sell the helicopters. Sad to see both companys go.
  2. Hahah this guy is awesome! Very cool dog kokonutz
  3. Yes, you can program frequencies using the radio keypad but it looks like a complicated process... as programming most hand held radios tend to be. I used the Chirp program on Windows 7 and it was easy. I'm not sure about using a Mac. I bought my radio online from Fleetwood Digital Products out of Surrey. I also got the USB programming cable from them. Total came to $136.31.
  4. After 2 weeks of using my new Baofeng UV-8HP, I give in 5 stars! Im working on a drill program in northern BC and while the company supplies anyone on the job with an Icom IC-F3261DT, I found that I much rather prefer my UV-8HP. I initially brought it in to camp to program it and test it for when Im on other jobs, but I'm finding that I like carrying around this light unit over the Icom brick. The dual channel feature is great. I can monitor both the "in camp" channel and the repeater channel without switching back and forth. Its reception and transmitting power is just as good as the Icom. My pilot said I come in loud and clear and just as good as everyone else.
  5. Hey Diaper_Pin, where in Van did you end up buying this? Also did it come with a USB programming cable?
  6. This is a very interesting thread....
  7. Big deal, cant believe this got so much attention. You can hear the boaters loved it, no one was in danger. If he dumped the water on them then there would be a problem, but otherwise harmless in my opinion.
  8. Sad to say, but I dont see Transport ever giving his license back. Not after something like that. Loosing his mind and taking a shotgun to a helicopter causing nearly a million in damages will have insurance companies on his back for years. Lets be realistic now.
  9. Aeroglaze works great! Just smear it on, and wipe it off. No water needed.
