Possible Satellite Disruptions

The sun has been very 'active' lately:

A strong flare on the 4th may be responsible for some satellite disruption this past Weds (6 Sep).

Likewise, a strong X9.3 flare on the 6th may affect satellites today into tomorrow (8-9 Sep) as a wave of particles head towards Earth (as well as Jupiter 1 and 2).


Edit: Despite popular belief, these issues eminate from a far higher power than HughesNet. #JustSayin

Re: Possible Satellite Disruptions



Interesting.  This might explain the transmission issue I experienced for a few minutes on the evening of the 6th.  It was the first time I've ever experienced such with Gen5, save for when it's weather related.  I unplugged the modem, left if off for a few minutes, plugged it back in and it worked.  It may not have been related to the aforementioned issue, but it may have.  


Thanks for the info.
