Thanks Randy; I just downloaded TAC32 and it's got one of my catatonic 
GT+s talking to me now.  I'll leave it to its devices for a while longer 
and then try the other one.

I'm going to be mounting all the modules with interface and power supply 
boards and will be feeding backup power from an AA-size lithium battery. 
  So, those on-board batteries will be coming OFF!  If anything goes 
wrong then, I can just power down, pop out the backup battery (or unplug 
the module) and hopefully get back to a default state.

Now I discover that I don't have a good sky view so think that I'll have 
to wait until the builder finally turns up (already 6 months late) and 
can get my antennas up on the ridge cap.
