I still can't get a stable reading from doing repeated surveys so
something is effecting the readings as they used to come out at 7.5m
MSL reliably. The latest one was 5.4m MSL and I'm having trouble
believing that. As regards a change in multipath, I really don't see
how that could be the case as we have not had any lateral movement of
the immediate surrounding environment and I'm pretty clear of
obstacles to the North as my garden leads onto a wildlife reserve with
hardly any trees nearby.
