    Congratulations on getting the license!

    I have been playing a bit this year with a kite aerial. It really boosts the distance on low watts. I managed to get my M0 a few years ago but only really so that I could take the little radio abroad...

    Just loved the photo on the front of the Guardian Travel section. The article is a little dummed down compared to the book. I have shown several people the video now.

    Just a couple of points...

    Leave your car on the moor? Will it stay there undamaged?

    We were lucky and had transport provided by a contact.
