Not sure that it has gone, had my scanner on all evening & haven't heard it go.

Kuwait060 was his c/s today

EDIT: Chris, I have multiple reasons to doubt the veracity of the posts on FC that you mention stating that it's gone, but the least contentious of those reasons is that I've just been for a 5 minute drive, and with a good pair of bins you could read the reg even now.
