Solar storm heading towards Earth threatening to break your Sky TV and mobile phones

A HUGE solar storm is heading towards Earth which could leave us without mobile phones, satellite TV and even electricity.

Modern-day Britain could go into meltdown after scientists forecast the solar storm to hit between now and Friday which could wreak havoc with technology.

Northern hemisphere is tilted away at the greatest angle of the solar year. Effects will be minimal.

Perfect!  That means 6 meters, 10, 11, 12 meters will be wide open again, enabling Amateur Radio communications around the globe with minuscule power!

Remember the days when a CB radio could talk coast to coast with just 4 watts of power?   Welcome back Skip!

Hmm...  If I remember right my uncles call latters was W7DJW.  They stop giving W7 for sometime now.  I remember go out with him when they would play what they call Rabbit at that time back then.  Three or four would lock in on a signal and they would find the Rabbit. (the spot the signal was coming from.   That was over 75 years ago.  LOL
