Think he also has G1OCN?  I'm not sure.

Anyway, I can't immediately verify whether or not M3 licence holders can 
use 23cm, although I'm pretty sure we can't use 12cm - odd that, since 
there's an ISM allocation slap bang in the middle.  In any case, I don't 
have any 23cm gear so it's SO-50 only for a few weeks.
