Guess we stand a good chance of seeing some pretty nice northern lights tonight, way up here almost within sight of the Canadian border, in NW Montana! (Hey, naekid, we're waving at you over there in Calgary, can ya see us?)
So far the sky is clear.
btw, we're keeping the laptop computers and camera memory cards in the (metal) gun safe ("farraday cage") just in case...except for when we're using them...like I am right now!
I'm wondering about EMP-like effects. I guess we'll know soon! This time, anyway!
I'm gonna take a spin a little north when it starts getting dark to see if I can see something outside of the city-lights. If y'all don't hear from me in the mornin' it means that I am still a'hoofin' it back towards home
Its the beginning of the 11 year solar cycle next year, for us DX Ham radio operators the solar activity is welcome, better propagation and longer contacts. Bring it on, oh, I will be in the bunker making contacts on my gear.
