    And thank YOU, Seagull, for following "us" on "our" facebook-site..... You know, the last couple of weeks I recieved a lot of messages and mails from people all over Norway and Denmark, to be a sort of "live-reporter" on facebook. Just in case there would be low activity on that site.

      Only our fantasy is our limit.

      Some of us who followed the Voyage at TV and chatted on facebook all the way from Bergen, has spent the day trying to arrange an "in person"-meeting on Hurtigruten.

      We have opened a new facebook-group, and so far it seesms that the Nordnorge-trip from Bergen 24.june 2012 will be our Voyage....

        I know Sterkoder's wind explanation is correct (thank you Big S) but I still like to remember it as a woolen microphone, and here it is:

          In their excitement at ending the epic TV voyage, they have forgotten to change the AIS. It still reads:

          Destination: NO KIRKENES

          Maybe the Captain wants to live Minutt for Minutt for ever.

          EDIT: OK, somewhere before Tromsø they have changed it to BERGEN.

            Having established my technologist credentials (with my interest in the knitted microphone), I thought I would post the result of my research into the word-of-the-moment "satellittskygge" (satellite-shadow). This article gives us some appreciation of the amount of planning behind Munutt for Minutt.

            (Apologies if this has been mentioned before. I looked through the topic and couldn't find it).

            Original : From http://nrkbeta.no/2011/06/17/hurtigr...tellittskygge/
            Hurtigruten: hvordan sende direkte fra satellittskygge

            Sendingen fra MS Nordnorge går via satellitt til hovedkontrollen på Marienlyst. Men i trange fjorder og sund, faller av og til satellittdekningen ut fordi det kommer fjell mellom skipet og satellitten.

            Hvor dette sk...jer, har vi i detalj kartlagt på forhånd, og har, for å unngå å gå i svart, sikret oss med opptak gjort under forrige seilas med MS Nordnorge. Disse opptakene ligger nå på disk på Marienlyst og avvikles konstant synkront med direktesendingen. Når vi så nærmer oss en av satellittskyggene, kan hovedkontrollen klippe inn backup-opptaket.

            Den mest skyggefulle strekningen på turen er gjennom Storfjorden, og inn i Geiranger. I Storfjorden har vi et utfall på 32 minutter, og i Geirangerfjorden er det ikke dekning i det hele tatt.

            Men i og med at Geirangerfjorden er en av turens mest spektakulære etapper, ville vi gjerne klare å gå direkte derfra. Så for å få til det har Audun Torsdalen fra Linkgruppa funnet en løsning som bruker to digital punkt til punkt-videolinker av merket Strata.

            Linkene funger så lenge det er fri sikt mellom sender og mottaker, så ved å tegne inn båtens rute på kartet kunne han finne ut hvor mottakerne til linkene måtte stå.
            Translation : English (by Google Translate and Clipper)
            Hurtigruten: How to send directly from a satellite-shadow

            The transmission from MS Nordnorge is via satellite to NRK's main control centre. But in narrow fjords and inlets, satellite coverage drops out due to mountains between ship and satellite.

            We made a detailed mapping of this effect in advance and, to avoid blackout, made recordings during an earlier voyage of MS Nordnorge. These recordings are now on disk at Marienlyst (NRK's main office in Oslo) and kept in constant synchronisation with the live broadcast. When we approach a satellite-shadow, the production staff cut to the backup recording.

            The most shady stretch of the trip is through the Storfjord area and in Geiranger. In Storfjord, we have 32 minutes worth of drop-out, and in Geiranger Fjord, no coverage at all.

            But Geiranger Fjord is one of the tour's most spectacular stages and we wanted to transmit directly from there. So to achieve that, Audun Torsdalen of Linkgruppa found a solution employing two digital point-to-point video links, with equipment by Strata.

            The links work fine as long as there is line of sight between the transmitter and receiver, so by plotting the ship's route on the map he could establish exactly where the links had to be located.
            OK, I'm a bit of a geek but I like to know this stuff.

                            Ahaaa... thank you so very much Tommi for the tip. So that is the reason why NRK contacted me and purchased two of my images for the use on their coming DVD.

                            Two of the images that I took from the bridge has now been sent them and I guess only time will tell us if and when they will use them on the DVD-cover. At least they have pruchased the rights to use the images on their discreation.
