Hi Clive 

That is new to me and I believe  I built the first  FM TV system for 24 Ghz over 35 years ago

It is some years since I operated on 24GHz, out of curiosity I wonder when the requirement was dropped to obtain written authority from the Home Office to even operate a receiving station on this band?

My recollection is that to transmit you had to submit details of proposed location, NGR, PEIRP for each mode of modulation, frequency, also name, callsign & address of receiving station who presumably needed to submit a reciprocal application, oh yes & to complete a Radiation Hazard Certificate.

This made spontaneous operation very difficult. So when did things loosen up?
