Now in the good old analogue days you could detect aircraft flutter quite
easily, how would you go about it on a digital system. I did not rise to the
bait of suggesting I go around as to be honest there would be little I could

We are after all in a very strong signal area here, and I'd have thought it
most unlikely that a properly installed aerial would have this problem,
which leaves either paranoia or a faulty installation.


Perhaps s/he has Freesat and is very close to the airport. Can't see a mechanism otherwise.
