My 1st Post: Free Television Equipment

Post by Telekom » Sun Nov 08, 2020 11:26 pm

Hi everyone
My name is Mark, I live in Glasgow, and I recently got a 96 diesel AFT Bongo! It’s great, and the day after I got I took it for a week around Skye and the northwest of Scotland. Brilliant.

There were TV fittings in my van which I removed - if anybody wants them please reply below and you can have them for the price of postage and packing! What is included?

Vision Plus Compact 260 Digital TV Antenna
Vision Plus Digital TV Amplifier VP2
Steel mounting bracket and hanging fixture, looks like it is made for a small flatscreen
Sucker mount for antenna
Some sort of co-ax socket on a plastic stand-mount
Cables to connect the amp and antenna to TV
Various bolts and fixings
Instruction manual

I don’t know anything about TV fittings, so if you are in any doubt about to how to use this equipment, I am sure a helpful person here will assist - but I know zilch! 😬

Even if you don’t want it for your Bongo you could use it in a shed or caravan or whatever. Free to a good home!
All the best
Mark

Oh, and I forgot to say - if you are near Glasgow you can pick up this equipment, no postage required.

Very generous of you Mark =D> . If you don't find another Bongo owner that can use it put it on ebay, somebody will buy it and you can spend the money on your Bongo......... on diesel probably :roll:

Free to a good home, or even a bad home! Tessie, I will be selling a kidney soon to get diesel for my next Bongo trip. 😀

Welcome aboard. I have a 95 diesel and it does WhatICanAfford MPG,which, over the 14 years i've had the Bongo, i've gotten quite used to. The mpg has been outstanding since March 2020 and the tyre treads seem to last forever too :( :lol:
I Bongo, therefore I am...
