Re: van_IT_y projects

Totally forgot about the "Airwave" project... I was on the receiving end when I ran with the Met police.... the system had such terrible reception it wouldn't work very far underground so whenever you went into the tube station, good luck calling for backup... there were even some police stations which had terrible reception so instead they replaced it with a "panic button", which of course, someone accidentally pressed once a night.. and then everyone's airwave was filled with the sound of "Acton police station is UNDER ATTACK! Acton police station is UNDER ATTACK".... then the circus followed where you had to call a guy who was smoking a cigarette in the car park to go in and just check that no, they weren't under attack....
