I've heard that a certain SaRG PI(N) does not believe that SRATCOH is mandatory, but for "guidance".
Apparently he also disagrees with managed closures when there are staff shortages, having...

The NOTAM specifies 2 x 30 minute and 1 40 minute closure on two days over a 5 day period. Not a complete closure for all of the 5 days! :ugh:

Conspicuity squawks for non-radar units are far more useful than ORCAM/CCAMS in an unknown traffic environment.
The attitude of ATCO Fred and others does worry me. It may be possible to guess which...

I'm sorry, but skydiving is so incompatible with any other activity it should never have been at the airport to start with. It was a very large square peg trying to fit into a very small round hole....

Who's working the traffic?

I've noticed lately that there seems to be an increase in ORCAM/CCAM squawks being used outside controlled airspace. I am also seeing new controllers being taught that this is normal.

If it's the aircraft I saw, it was on a 0024 squawk, which is for an aircraft performing some form of calibration. I'm guessing it was checking out high level radar coverage.

I have been hearing nasty rumours that the UK's SARG are considering scrapping SRATCOH, replacing it with a "unit specific" scheme.

If you are not VMC, then you must comply with the IFR (rules 33 & 34 outside controlled airspace).

Rule 34 (quadrantal rule) :-
