    Interesting -- there's a lot of solar activity at the moment, and we had a big auroral display last night...
    Today -- can't get more than a 3 - 4 sats lock with the PV, or other GPS devices!

    What are you flying in your picture?
    I used to fly a lot around Aberdeen.
    Long time member of the Aberdeen hanggliding club. I think that I was also one of the 1st doing paragliding over there.
    Did lots of flights from Durris, Glenshee, tap o noth and lots of other places.

    Great flights.. That was when the weather was okay....

    Do you know Bob Dunthorn? (Hangglider pilot)
