2.5 miles between NATS HQ in Fareham and NATS operation centre (if that's what it's called, I can't remember!) at Swanwick - hence my thinking :)

Im waiting with baited breath on the communications side of it , especially any news on HF transmissions. Kinloss could not function without it especially in remote areas, although a certain percentage is TETRA these days. I have read that the new civilian operator will be Sat Comm equiped to allow phone calls to be made. We will have to wait and see !

Sorry EGCC, forgot NATS was there! Makes sense....
