I’ve been surprised at just how well our system DOES work - our electrical system is really REALLY complicated - using 3 separate electrical systems, generators, solar, 12V batteries, invertors and DC and AC systems!
We’ve managed to use IPoP to get a plug in adaptor 200m away previously - no drama; and on entirely separate circuits by “bridging” (using two plug in adaptors on separate electrical circuits and connecting them via a Cat5 cable!).
We’re now even more “off grid” as it’s a 4G router powering the IPoP!
I have OpenReach coming out tomorrow. Not sure what it’ll achieve unless I can convince them to replace 500 metres of copper wiring with fibre optic cabling at their expense, but I’ll entertain them for a laugh.
We were quoted £55,000 to install fibre optic to us… But it’s close to 1km of cabling.
If we want mains electricity it’s £150,000. Again, 1km of cabling to get to “a public area”. To go from the “public area” to the point at which they can plug us in to the national grid us a good 2km run - of which they are kindly willing to waive the cost of the cable! What they won’t waive is the expense of a traffic management system to shut one lane of an A-class road for up to a month whilst they dig trenches and lay infrastructure.
I saw some really nice RAFAC branded shooting posters recently with marksmanship principles and the different weapons systems cadets can fire. I’ve had a look on the training hub shooting part of sharepoint but does anyone know where they might be hidden before I try to recreate them? They were blue text which made them look very RAF rather than army with the 4 principles and a little symbols for each such as an eye or a round
