There was another magnetic burst few days ago. A storm.

Did anybody have any problems?

Last time, was it in October or November, we had few days a huge magn. storm. I have reckon that may have been the reason for the unexpected tant burn I suddenly had in my secreg in the NAC.

May be possible if the tant was on the edge, who knows?

In the end of 2003 whole Southern Sweden lost electricity by sun bourne magnetic burns, they say. BTW in the end of 2004 Sweden again lost it's electricity in some Southern parts but this time by storming winds and rains. Before we joked about the Russian submarines Swedes saw everywhere, now their electric systems..

Most propable. A clear torpedo hit. :D

One day I woke up from my nap (no, I was not in a NAP!)
for a bumb sound. Then smaller scratching and bumbing from
spkrs. Went to look and saw my open NAC was smoking.

At once turned my cap down. This had happened.
A tant burned from one sec. reg. After being on about 2-3 weeks.

Saw a periscope heading off our garden...

No other damages reported.

Kylla!

Mind you, when I think about it, it's more likely to have been an American one. I think most of the Soviet ones are tied-up and on the verge of reactor meltdown.

Makes sense really...

Hyvää iltaa Linnik!

I have to confess, I'm a bit of a fraud. I am just practising a few words and phrases, prior to a very short business trip to somewhere in your locality.

As you are all waiting for this info with baited breath.
It was caused by a powerful X (class x3.8) Solar flare from sunspot region 10720. The solar explosion was also exceptionally
"loud." At frequencies of 10 cm (about 2800 MHz), the explosion was over 80 times louder than the background noise of the Sun, registering a burst intensity of 12,000 sfu (the normal background level being about 150 sfu).

Do I get the anorak

Clive,

You've earned your anorak. Nice you've got your hearing back, at least partially.
