    just finished testing this combo (in 8x10) and the results are more than promising...my original intention was to get box speed but am happy/lazy enough to confirm that I can get asa 150 out of the film with the Ilford PQ....ran 4 negatives souped at 1:24@68 degrees starting at 4 minutes and pulled at 30 second intervals... (done in a tray) the 4 minute negative has all the appearance of what makes for a good platinum negative...
    this film is a good value and you can get close to box speed with the above developer...thanks to Vaughn and the British contingent for turning me on to the Ilford PQ
    Best, Peter
