En route variant

Did you know there was an en route variant named the "Routeman"? As a spotty grad in the 90s I forgot which LRRS I encountered it at. Maybe Lowther Hill in the southern uplands. I tend only to remember the 23cm at Claxby, Lincs. Mainly because I met the nicest ever Sen Engineer there in charge of the whole site- Tony Lowe I think his name was. And the station Administrator Elaine. Made the best cuppas ever. They let us climb up the gantry with this massive rotating antenna, like the Heathrow one, only all white, what felt like inches (mm) above our heads... on a bright sunny Lincs day with nothing else around, very memorable.
