John,

It's ordered, but not yet received (and it has to come from the USA - no 
UK supplier?).  See the comparison between the supplied GA 27C and their 
antenna:

I'll report back when it arrives.  At the moment, I'm getting lock about 
half the time, but at least with the unit permanently on I trust the 
frequency in holdover mode (constant control voltage) to be far better 
than anything else I have.

Cheers,
David
