Many thanks to all who are helping with this - about 10 people so far. 
I do need more, up to 25 if possible, so if you can help, dive in and 
try the tests, and tell your friends too.

All that's needed is a musical ear, a PC or Mac with sound and a 
broadband connection, and 15 minutes or so to do each of 9 tests. The 
results will be written up as part of my PhD thesis, and will prove (or 
disprove) a theory about the strike notes of bells. The tests can be 
accessed online at where 
you will also find full instructions.
