I did know a 1970s G5, G5AFA who worked for the US
Embassy and had a house in Selsey. When I first met him, he had a
room full of Eddystone receivers. When I popped into see him is
Selsey, he had been banished to a caravan in the back yard with
Collins gear. He told me that he had been instrumental with
gewtting the reciprocal licence think going in the UK.
So, I'm not worried about being a G5xxx.
It was G5AFA who was responsible for my downfall.

noticing things? - Jeremy Paxman
