Breusch-Pagan test after a fixed-effects panel estimation

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
Dear statalist,

I want to check for heteroscedasticity after performing an fixed effects estimation on my unbalanced panel.

-xttest2- doesn't work for me because I have 2 time observations over 308 individuals.

Is there a command I can use?

It's definitly possible to calculate the test statistic if T<N; I've seen it in other papers* my subject. (yardstick competition between municipalities)
