<< Decca masts - latest situation.

 Agreement with Racal obtained.
 Schedule of available stations upcoming.
 RSGB notified; support of HF Cttee promised.
 Applications for possible NOV's in process.

Firstly. Thank you Walter and the DMG for a unique opportunity.

However, I'm a little concerned about the prospect of two dozen individuals
phoning the RA trying to get various NOV's for higher power / changes in main
station address to avoid /P  etc.   It may appear  a tad unprofessional.
One must watch ONE's image and be professional at all times.

If you inform the DTI that you will be working from an address other than the
main address, no /P is necessary and no NOV required, except you require a
special callsign or mode/power changes.
Does the "DMG" have any suggestions about how this can be co-ordinated so
that we collectively retain the respect of the licensing authority?  e.g.
Single call and NOV per site etc.

Guidance required please.
What are the NOV's mentioned above?

Keep it simple and flexible, go along and use your own callsign/p. No need for
complicated procedures and new NOV,s now that numerous sites are available it
might get too complicated.

With antennas masts as high as  400 ft and large antenna arrays good TX 
filtering
is essential to avoid splattering on the band, plus good RX filtering to avoid
overloading the front end.

Good luck to those involved, it is an oppertunity in a life time to work from a
COMMERCIAL
SITE, in spite of the recent critizism to the contrary about following the
COMMERCIAL approach
and using large towers!!!!!!!!!!! Is it really amateur radio when someone else
provides the towers and elaborate radial system, and in some cases the 
equipment.
All the amateur is doing is sending/receiving slow CW.
I  will stay at home and EXPERIMENT with my own antennas and modest rf power.
