Sounds great to me. Lots of grist to the
flat-fielder's mill. And, as the other posts
point out, there is a lot of older data on
that area. Once upon a time I helped with the
observations for the first earth rotation aperture
synthesis of the north polar region at 178 MHz ...

I am currently downloading Tycho2 for the pole.
