Ah that sounds more like it. Aerial maintenaance shuts down the whole site
these dats including MSF. There is really no reason for them to keep it
running but I think Trinity House are paying the bill. It cannot be used for
nav without Lessay and the output from Sylt, So I muse that they are keeping
it powered up because the equipment is quite old now (1990s vintage, the
unused kit destined for Loop Head in Ireland) and if the leave it off for
any length of time it just wont start again :-)) We all know that syndrome
I dont know if this is correct but I got the feeling it was not running
anything like full power??
