Solar flare activity occurring now on the sun is likely to cause interference to communication systems here on earth for the next couple of days.

In particular, this geomagnetic activity will interfere with radio (especially HF), mobile phone, satellite communication and GPS signals.

So if your electronic Stuff is playing up, it's not you, it's Them.

ps. Waeco fridges may have a problem too, but not Engel of course. LOL

Alan, good post however I have a question about your rig pic.... I am baffled at how this is Eyre Telegraph Station, can you please explain the apparent snowy conditions? What am I seeing - smoke haze and a B&W creative photo?

Thanks Michelle

Hi Michelle, Yes, Rod is correct. It is sand.

The shot was taken on a white sandhill near the old Eyre Telegraph Station with a lightly overcast sky. Taken in full colour with no filter but then converted to monochrome using NIK SilverEfexPro software within Apple Aperture.

SilverEfexPro converts and manages the contrast without losing the mid-tones.

Nothing was arranged for the exposure, it was as I found it. The fishing net was draped possibly by the wind, or possibly by an earlier visitor.

Cheers
