Bye-bye electronic crap in cars. Electricity supplies. Unhardened communications. On the plus side we might have the Northern Lights to look at - as there won't be anything on the telly !!

(It's being so cheerful that keeps me going!)

There was a programme on telly last night all about this. It's on the BBC iplayer if anyone particularly wants to watch it.

...you might just have time before the internet crashes!

EVERYTHING'S GOING TO BE OK. I think Gallaghers Pub still use the old hand pumps for the Trappers. Mmmmm....Getting there could be a problem ?

If I remember rightly they also affect normal hf comms as well as the VHF/UHF, so should be fun to see how we cope when everything crashes. Always reckoned the total switch to digital was dodgy because it goes up on the high bands.
I'm ok, I can walk to Gallaghers.
Sod you Jack, I'm inboard.
