Still looking for IO91 square if anyone fancies a trip to a place I found on the ridge south of Royston that should go to here.
Contact me off line for details if you can roam there.  
Also I have two sets of 122GHz kit but only one operator
As I'm the Club licensee, could I work myself as G3EEZ I wonder,  and run down the garden between overs? :-)
Still waiting for my 10MHz OCXOs to arrive before I set up proper /P kit
