    Well, that ought to make my CB reception better...I know the lack of flares lately has really made reception, and broadcast suffer.

    I'm not worried, I can fly a small, twin-engine aircraft. Those can easily escape worldwide destruction.

    Oh, well if Fox News said so...

    More accurately, the flare could cause disruption of the navigation signals. The satellites themselves will survive, and once the disruption fades things should work fine.

    I think.

    Oops, I should have looked into the section instead of using the search and bringing up old threads. Sorry.

    So far, I think I can feel it already and my router acts strange too.

    Unless the runway drops out from under your landing gear before you reach takeoff speed.

    Oh, well if Fox News said so...
    Oh, stop your whining. One news channel comes along that doesn't coddle you little lefties, and you cry like a hungry baby with a dirty diaper.

    All of my DirecTV HD local channels went out yesterday evening. Not sure if the flare had anything to do with it, but it's never happened before.

    You still believe in Mayan mythology? Have you been a practicing Mayan all your life, or just when you heard about their calendar in the news?

    It was Global Warming that knocked out your satelite reception.

    No need to get so defensive about your alarmism. I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings, sorry.
