Even with Bandwidth, it's still better than using a 128 set and O.T.L.P. lol!

Doug, it was a cheap shot at the sigs pln. we used the 128 set in "D" Patrol Coy, also VSOP codes which were a follow up to the old Brandy codes and then we switched to "One Time Letter Pads" hence OTLP. very hard to crack and any info was useless as it was only used once!!!! Not really interested in cricket but one has to join the mob and have a go at the "Poms" especially now that our dollar is worth 62 pence!!!
