Operation of the Mode-S Beast in London

Stonehenge

I was invited to give a presentation of work towards the Mode-S decoder at the Martlesham Microwave Round Table in London. I took this as a chance to visit long time friends in the UK and of course I had the complete Mode-S equipment with me. Tests were done close to Andover, at the Adastral Park BT site in Martlesham-Heath and last on a decent free location close to Felixtowe. And in the program parallel, my friend Peter showed me the Stonehenge monument. I will surely never forget the moment when we came across the highway and I suddenly spotted the huge construction far away in the middle of the Salsbury plain.
