I've always though he was a bit of a mercurial character.

Slight (and very pedantic/sad) divergence from the topic, but whilst some ATCOs are paying attention...Is - in a quiet gap of course - barking "QNH Check?" entirely on its own acceptable on a UK freq (akin to "Wind Check?") or do I need to introduce myself first then request it in the olf fashioned style?

It would be for me, other grumpier controllers may not like it but if you need it then it's much quicker just to do as you've said

Arh, the word "check"...... way overused by some.... "check this", "check that"..... unecessary in may circumstances.
