  1. A friend had very similar issues where their garden backed on to a disused railway line. Badgers used it as a little highway to access all the rear gardens to hunt for food. Artificial grass soon moved them on to a neighbour.

    Radio coms

    My thoughts based on having used most of your options: Mobile CB. Not sure, they are expensive, highly accesable. - very open channels and subject to interference. Handsets not that cheap. Camping pmr446, - cheap, accessable, not sure about quality of transmit. - got some Motorola ones that work ok with line of sight - maybe half a mile. use them for pigeon shooting and very useful. Can still get channel interference but far less that CB. Digital pmr. Alittle more expensive, clear audio.- certainly a step up on the camping ones - better range and usually a better power output. More expensive. Baofeng pmr446 - cheap and analogue, aparently really good. - certainly worth a punt for the money but might be similar to the camping 446 quality messenger Pigeons, clean up, and have to feed them. - better on the BBQ Walkie-Talkie type radios can be good fun to use as well and you can get some chat and banter going. Another option with mobile phones is to set up a WhatsApp group and you all message on that.

    One of these in a tunnel is a bit cheaper: https://www.bushwear.co.uk/products/mk4-fenn
  4. I have a Nextbase - very pleased with it. Excellent quality HD with GPS so you get speed tracking and location on it. If you get anything too low spec with poor image quality it's not really much use when you need it.
  5. I was expecting you to say .22 12 bore seems a little excessive!
  6. Where did you shoot the corned beef?
  7. Maybe try somewhere like this? https://www.facebook.com/groups/583844585101628/
  8. I'm on a service contract with Worcester Bosch for £25 p/m, so £300 per year. That includes an annual service and call outs if we have a problem. We have an oil burner and must have had about £1500 of work in the last 3 years - so we still feel like we're in credit!
  9. One of these works really well: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07CM6YSGP/ref=dp_cerb_2
  10. "Behind every politician are several people who actually know what they are talking about" *allegedly
  11. Ok - well I use several of these for various uses. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07DJCZQ74/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Excellent 1080HD with good night vision. Wfi or hard wired. Can take micro SD card and record.
  12. Is this another war film where the US of A take credit for something the Brits did?
  13. How big an area does it have to cover? Will it have access to wifi? Can it be mains powered?
