Electro magnetic wave affect M2 performance

Heared from news that past day’s electro magnetic wave strength is more and as an result in the sky there were 40 Satellite system distroed in the air itself near Earth orbit.

In that case Reach M2 Signals also getting low quality signal or not high good enough continusly may the reason for that?.

It’s just assumption and need clarification from the emlid experts.!

Those were Starlink satellites and unrelated to what we do. Flares definitely cause some interference but I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary in Central Texas.

I use this during approaching geomagnetic storms:


Also, I have this as my home screen on my web browser:


Geomagnetic storms will have significant affects on GNSS and also other satellite systems. The space weather website is very useful especially if planning any large GNSS projects for mapping.


The old L1 SBAS systems were really noticeably horrible during any level solar or storm activity.

L2 RTK is much more robust, last summer I found it would get a bit wavy before big thunderstorms, and noticeable error on solar ejection days. Usually I did not want to be outside if the GNSS was acting up anyway.


Hi there,

I read this news too! Got upset about Starlink satellites :disappointed: Geomagnetic storms affect GNSS signals, of course. But heavy storms are not an often phenomenon and doesn’t affect all the atmosphere at a time. Another way, GNSS measurements wouldn’t be possible at all.
