It is allowed. I scraped together a few pence and bought myself a christmas present for myself as I am a good bloke. It is a digital radio and it works very well around the highrise, unlike the multitude of other radios around the highrise that give static and get interference from everything from the electric toothbrush to the computer. It has non removable batteries and the charge lasts about 16 hours, depending on whether the speaker or ear buds are used. It works well enough out on the street and on trams and buses too. Digital radio does not give you static. It either works or the sound cuts out. It was patchy reception on the Bellarine Peninsula. Just in case our Brian is au fait with such machines, Australia uses a different system to the UK. UK uses DAB and we use DAB+. They are not compatible. The plus indicates the radio comes with a serve of French Fries.
Sister just bought herself a larger digital radio. She paid $80 for her Bush. Mine cost a good bit more. I had ummed and ahhed about it for a good bit of time, but not to the point where R yelled, for god's sake, just buy it.
Dear Gerry Harvey's Harvey Norman was the only store where I could see it and pick it up and hold it. It looked smart, felt heavy. I liked it. Gerry's bloke on the floor would not discount it from its $189 price. Righto. I shall think about it and thank you for showing me your goods.
Oh lala. I can buy it much much cheaper online from overseas. Buying from overseas is of course riskier than buying locally online. I can't go and fire bomb an outlet so easily if it overseas and my purchase fails to proceed.
Nah, I shall buy locally and pay my Goods and Services Tax. $149 online, postage and extra $7.50 or pick up in Moonee Ponds. That is $40 cheaper than Harvey Norman. HN will match prices from other stores, but not what you can buy online. I paid up online and despatched R the next day on the Craigieburn train to collect it. I gave him explicit directions and he foolishly trusted me. I said exit the station, go under the subway walk and turn left into Margaret, right into Hall, left in Everage.
I forget if it is a subway or level pedestrian crossing at Moonee Ponds Station to get to Puckle Street, but evidently there is a subway north of Hall Street, so that made mockery of my directions. He needed to turn right into Margaret Street. To salvage myself, I sang the qualities of suburban walks in Moonee Ponds and what interesting housing it has. He was forced to agree. He had done a bit of circuit.
I am very happy with new digital wireless. There is even a QLD Flood station, thanks to our ABC. Some of the channels puzzle me, mostly music stations. There are four test stations, which also seem to be music. But what sort of radio station would be called Barry?
