    Lowering with a winch

    The only problem i see is that your winch has a brake in the out direction. As you lower the pump the winch will be working against the brake. With a lot of continued use the brake will eventially ware out but as you said this doesn't happen very often. Go for it i say but just be aware...

    Simpson Geo Centre and Geo Surveys Hill

    Mt Fitton to Beverly Uranium Mine track

    Travelled that way Aug. last year.. The track from Mt. Freeling was really easy going and the scenery to me magic. A lot of people camp on the creek about 20k. further on towards Moolawatana, another great camp site and has walking tracks. The road continues and is extremely good being miming...

    UHF channels (busy when radio is turned on)

    I would say the wiring to your UHF. is too close to your radio wiring. Do not earth to another radio of any sort and try powering your UHF. with a jumper wire from the radio, out through the door to the battery to prove the problem. Its quite common for radios of any sort to pick up...

    Being charged for exporting from your solar panels.

    Charging to put power back into the grid will only backfire and push power prices up for consumers that don't have solar. For example I have solar and only pay a power bill in winter when I have minimum charge from the sun. IF I am charged to supply the grid it would then be an option for me...
