    New Roof Rack fitted the past week.

    Removed the Old Rescue Basket (Ladder Rack) System, Rhino Basket and 150mm PVC Tube, and fitted a OCAM Alloy Flat Rack and two 100mm PVC Tubes in their place.

    Old system had limited storage space and as I'm not doing Medic Work anymore, I thought
    something more practical would be a good idea.

    The 2nd Hand OCAM Alloy Flat Rack I picked-up, Less the Solar Panel.

    Looking rather bare with all the old system removed, two New Steel Uni Struts fitted to original bar
    work for added strength and to allow the OCAM Rack to be mounted using Gutter Nuts.

    Old Ladder Rack Sides reused on both sides to fill in the sides and assist with mounding lights and
    aerial mounts.

    New LED Light Bar fitted, and Old Hazard LED Modules refitted to New Rack.

    Two New 100mm PVC Tubes fitted, 1x for Fishing Rods, 2nd for Tent Poles, Old 10w Solar Panel
    added to allow trickle charge.

    Finally . . . as my 20w Solar Panel is about 11 years old and power supplying had dropped some,
    I replaced it with a Kings 160w Semi Flexible Solar Panel.

    And this holds my weight too, I can stand and walk on this rack with no issues.

    With being stuck at home in lock down, had extra time on my hands to do some researching through the Net and YouTube for faults repairs for my Icom IC-706mk2g HF/VHF/UHF Amateur Radio, and it looks like I found a fix . . . it seems a common issue with the circuit trace being eroded due to the adhesive used on a pad stuck to the circuit board, solder in a bridging wire and the old 706 turned on again for the first time in 3 years.

    So with my Icom IC-706mk2g up and working again, may as well fit My 706 and it's auto antenna tuner into the patrol . . . so time to make up a Radio Board for the Patrol.

    - Invertor
    - Icom IC-208H VHF/UHF Amateur Radio
    - LDG Auto Antenna Tuner
    - Icom IC-706mk2g
