I'm afraid the days of "10-4 good budgie, looks like we got us a con voy " are dead, at least from my observations. They seem to have been left on 27mhz am...thanks goodness.
I'd suggest that you listen a bit before pressing the big B. But the lingo often depends upon which channel you're on and which area you're in. Is that a Big 20-4 good budgie ?

Hey warfer

I can't remember the lingo.

But I heard if you fit a snorkel to it, it will go much better. ROTFLMAO.

I look forward to the Raspberry beer.

Cheers Steve.
