Hi Terry,

Yes, I last saw him at 10:25 this morning. He's a frequent visitor, often dropping in to RAF Mildenhall near here.

BTW, where are you located. I'm originally from Dublin.

Hi Terry,

You must have a very good range. SPAR70 last appeared about five minutes ago via the network out in the Atlantic west of ireland.

Hi Tom,
            Yes i`m very lucky to be located where i am,but i caught that A/C on the network,to the west of me is good,but not as good as the other directions.I`m 470ft ASL,and my area cover is quite vast,if you took my polar diagram and put it over spain,i would cover it and portugal.my range is 267nm,with 2 spikes at 290nm.So i feel i have a bit of an unfair advantage,and sympathise with those users not so fortunate as myself.

                 Regards Terry.

Terry,

I'm situated in a valley just 47m ASL, surrounded on three sides by some of the few hills in Suffolk. :-(

Attached is a screenshot of my polar diagram. Don't ask me what caused the spikes I wasn't watching the screen at the time but I imagine it was something very high like a WB-57.
