I dont remember the Moonrakers, only the name. Thanks for the comments. I ran a test and it is 1mhz low at the moment. This wont be a problem, just go back into the MMANA design and move some numbers around. Here it is packed away, all done in 30 mins from the push up mast to stowed. It is going to fit into the car very easily.

IF the Buxton bash happens next year, try and get down to it. I know it is a bit far, we could always pick you up from the Railway Station.
You will then get to play with it as much as you want to, with a good Amp inline of course. But you will have to take up wrestling ( fully clothed but no other rules ) with Trevor for the best seat.
That is really very kind of you, I havent been to Buxton for many years I used to date a gym instructress when she was at college in Buxton, my mum still lives in Marple I could try to work a visit in for around the same time all being well.
Unfortunately, things have been a little strained between us, she insisted i get my dog castrated(Not bloody likely) if I wanted to go back as he once chased a bitch in heat(surpise surprise), but she quite often just forgets about these things and I have plenty of time to work on her.
I havent been to an eyeball for years, I used to go to the Fiveways Hotel in Hazel Grove and the local CB club sometimes did a night at the Brookfield Hotel in Stockport all back in the early to mid eighties and I was a regular up at Werneth Lowe back then too. (I still have the seven foot firestick I used to use up there it got you out for miles)
