Solar flare detected and arriving this afternoon - and another this
weekend.

that eruption was bigger than the planet Jupiter. GPS stopped working,
Pagers went out, and AM and Shortwave flopped like a pancake.

I could get only one station on the broadcast band, it is about a mile away,
and THEY even had noise on them.

Hopefully the outages were only temporary.

Subject: Hot Bird 6 11096 Transponder

I think it's about time we all wrote to Eutelsat to complain about this
intolerable service.
I do assume Eumetsat, who must be paying megabucks for the service have
also
voiced their disapproval.
This Transponder problem is far too frequent.

Douglas.
