I remember well the time in the late 60s when I drove past G4JW's 
location on the west side of Sheffield. On the face of it, he had a 
fantastic location... an acre field next to his house and about 1000ft 
asl with the ground falling off rapidly to the North. I was working 
someone on 160m (mobile)at the time and, as I passed  4JW's house, the 
mobile signal dropped several SA units! When  I looked at the geology 
map I saw a very obvious fault line running right through JW's property!
