I diligently followed the rules in the datasheet for keeping it to a
minimum.  Nice star grounding (looks pretty on the PCB), everything very
close together.  I'm curious to know whether I've nailed it, but no
decent idea how to measure for radio noise.  Stupidly I met an EMC
specialist from UKAS at work last week (in connection with something
entirely different) and didn't ask him! Doh!
