Would you prefer to have more signals or more satellites?

Q: Would you prefer to have more signals or more satellites?

A: This is somewhat of a classic GNSS question, but before getting to the answer, let’s seek some clarity about what is being asked. First, by definition, “more” signals or “more” systems must be referenced against some baseline configuration. This is commonly assumed to be a GPS L1 C/A solution, and this assumption is also used herein.

New Research Says Turbulence Not to Blame for GNSS Outages During Northern Lights

Last week, researchers at the University of Bath in England announced findings indicating for the first time that turbulence does not take place within the Northern Lights and instead that unknown mechanisms are responsible for the outages of GNSS. This research concludes that new technology can be developed to overcome these outages from the Northern Lights, also known as aurora borealis.
