      It's true.. it's not hard... but it's a bit of a struggle.. and certainly it really helps to have done it once... or seen it done. If I was a bit nearer I'd come.. but it's a bit of a step for me......

      Hi Stefan - I think you need to see what wisdom others come up with - but my instinct is that all the faults stem from a problem with Controller 18 - not least because we know it's very vulnerable to...

      I doubt it... Power Line Carrier keeps threatening to make a comeback... but probably not at 132kV and above. The necessary filters, or line traps as we call them, are stonking great pieces of...

      Hi David.

      I think the advice you've had to date is good. I would add:
