    Is a Generator Ships = nuclear? I’m only guessing. But bar having something connected to some fuel source (gas, oil, coal…) what can you generate the electricity from? And having something sit in water is hardly safe and feasible in winter with storms.

    Not trying to start a Small Scale Doom thread but also noticed the media ,Sunday papers and TV reporting on BBC public information tapes .

    These reported to be telling us to prepare for blackouts,and stock up on batteries for our radios.

    Interesting note was that these radios should be capable of receiving Longwave.

    Could this be that in the event of no Internet connection, Droitwhich transmitter would work on terrestrial transmissions, or is it not on its way out?
