    Hi all - it's been a while. Apologies for absence and lack of support etc - life been getting in the way.
    Having not opened PI for 6+ Months (so be kind :) )I thought I would start with something relatively straightforward to dust the processing down a little, sure there are a few errors. Bits in Spain are taking shape so will have an abundance of data this year, best I get ready for that!

    This data is from my friends over at SSRO and their archive from 2016.
