Radar Sites' Locations
« on: February 06, 2012, 08:42:02 PM »
Its fine to have the Beast when one lives in an area where most radar sites are known.  Try finding them on your own when you live in the middle of the Med and a big unpleasant surprise awaits. Hence my request here if there are any Italian friends or others living in the central Med out here who have the Beast and are also trying to locate the various radar sites around.  In 4 weeks I've only managed 2 good sites and 2 almost good sites.  The rest send beams all over the place.  Not funny, believe me! I am happy to go on TeamViewer and have someone ready to spend some time trying to locate good sites.

Welcome, Are you Joe?

If we are you met at John's Field at Mildenhall a few years ago. You were with Ray and I loaned you a Canon battery.

Yes, I do Joe, but I've just had an SBS-3 delivered today so I'll be using the Beast in the mobile role and as a backup.

The next time the dragon-in-law flies in I'll ask for a loan of her broomstick to try out your idea  :)
