Many thanks, syzygy.
The clues were not so difficult, but the supplementary process was interesting and most entertaining.
[Spoiler alert]
Warning: one clue involves American usage that could be unfamiliar to many.

You're welcome.
A bit too easy & several clues had a US answer.

The code part was a good addition.

Quite US-centric as noted (no complaint here!). The structure is almost frighteningly ingenious. Thanks, syzzie!

Loved the fact no missing clues!

Have done the decoding, so happy. I imagine the US word is in the SW corner, as I haven't done 3 of those! Not worried, though.
