Lightbulb If I stand just so...

I can hear the local FM talk radio station...
'Must be the solar flares interacting with the steel plate and titanium shoulder parts (signal amplifier!?)

It all goes away when I wear the heavy duty aluminum commercial grade soup pot...

But...Way back in the 1900's, while I was hanging under giant all-metal Air Force C-5 wings...
...the GPS and radios were "at the mercy" of da SPOTZ and all bets were off!...
(and no body cared as long as I had an "on time" take off)...

Everything changes and everything stays the same! GoPhigure!? :eyecrazy:

p.s.
'Better go wrap your hard drive and back up disks in foil and put them in the freezer!?...

Re: If I stand just so...

penguin,

thanks for the tip.

just to be on the safe side, i think i may pick up an AFDB as well. i think i found a pretty good one on eBay. they're more commonly used for combatting alien mind control, but i figure it will work just the same

let me know if you need one too.

JB
