An experimental test for anisotropy of inertia performed by a nuclear freeprecession experiment is described. The precession was observed in the Earth's magnetic field, in a countryside location in the open air. The experiment was exceptionally sensitive, and slightly unusual in other ways. Some of the background and other aspects are briefly discussed.
