Stolen in Limerick

Driver’s window smashed and head stolen

Icom IC-2800H Two way radio head unit/Display pulled from the Dashboard

About 12:45am 25th January 2011. Snatched from Driveway by two men or youths in a Saloon Car or hatchback.

The main radio under the seat wasn’t touched, as no doubt they thought it was a GPS. These radio sets are very rare in Ireland, as very few ever imported. They have not been made for some years. Replace Head/Display units are not available. This may even be the only one in all of Munster.

It’s an Amateur Band two way radio for 430MHz and 145MHz.

If you have any information, please contact Roxboro Garda Station in Limerick City or use the Contact form here if you wish be anonymous.

What is Techtír about?
Saturday, October 17th, 2009 | Author:

Most new sites, especially Forums are either hyper focused (iphone or Archos) or as broad as possible. In any case the  aim often is simply Traffic.

Techtír is not just about Forums or Traffic. The idea is a  serious Technology Portal, with serious depth of content.

An important aspect will thus be the Articles.  While post in the Forums will help an ordinary user of a  smart phone, Router, Satellite Receiver or MP3 player, the idea is to have a meeting and Tech Info Clearing house for experts and those that want to be Experts.

Subscribers have much more access and control. Yet you can be recognised as providing good content by being given subscriber status.

There are more ideas too. Head over, signup to free Member level  and take a look around.
