Yes now that you mention it, I do remember something about the compass thing and I may have confused that with WWII. I learned about the mine thing from a WWII Navy vet in 1971 who was teaching electronics. We were discussing degaussing TV Tubes at the time and he told us the story about banging on the shipís deck to keep the mines away someplace in Europe that I don't remember. He also mentioned that they installed large DC cables across the SF Bay to demagnetize ships coming in from across the ocean to Mare Island for repairs.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
