Who do they do it with since Wainfleet closed?

Same used to happen with Donna and Cowden.
They also used to monitor each others Freqs. I remember some ANG A-7s calling Cowden back in the 80s - But Cowden was not opening till the afternoon that day.
Donna called the A-7 flight - told them Cowden was closed - But would you like to use Donna Nook which is currently cold!
Much to our joy while sat on Donna Beach

Not sure if they just do it between the towers at Holbeach now, could be someone with a handheld. They only ever say a sentence then move onto the next freq
