Dick,

From the linked article: "If we project those [error components] forward, it varies quite a lot across the Earth; looking at the UK it will be about 10-metre errors in the positioning."

My own celestial navigation skill is just a bit over that spec; do you mean to say yours are better than 10-M ?

I think your stink pot friends will still not be persuaded!
