He's taking it well isnt he ;) lol

All tongue in cheek this stuff. I don't give a monkey's about serial numbers...it's just a sticker. I know the Cobra gang would like to see the 1st ever 148 GTL-DX off the production line but it doesn't float my boat.

P.S. my 934mhz blue-fronted Uniden 400 has the no.6 serial number sticker inside it ;)

To cut a long story short, Edgar collects Magpie radios, Edd has the no.1 Magpie but they couldn't come to a deal for it to pass hands, so we're just messing and taking the pee. Mine hasn't even got a serial number so I'm claiming it's no.0 and worth even more just to add fuel to the fire.

All good fun ;)

Ooooo...no.13..unlucky for some!

Your car's going to crash, your house get hit by a plane engine that's fallen off, your cat's going to explode from keeping in its hairballs, you'll get attacked by a shark down at the local swimming pool...etc etc ;)

That'd be his greatest loss. Forget about the jewellery, cash, family heirlooms and laptops.

All this chatting's going on but there's a lack of decent pictures. Here's mine on its shelf amongst a few others on the top third of the unit they're in:

That's a bit of a crap collection.

What you need is one of the radios in the below picture to make it a good one. Its the top row, the radio second in from the right. If you haven't got one of those beauties, then go and get one on ebay immediately! ;)
