Another use for jumper leads -

Recently when camped on the Gibb River Road (well not actually on it) was having trouble picking up the football on ABC Radio when I noticed a Park Ranger working nearby solve the problem by laying his jumper leads out along the ground and clip one end to the car aerial.

Tried it -instant improvement and I was able to listen to the Dockers win

The sound of running water, smell of the fire, birds sounds from the tree, the cold on your hand from the beer, the smell of camp cooking the sound of the kids running around ,instead of sitting at the computer at home, AAAAAHHHHHHHH, then BLOODY football. Save me please.......................
