Re: solar flares

There is all manor of interference, that is why digital radio systems have many methods of error correction.

That being said, in many years of electronics repair, I have learned that the vast majority of failures are mechanical in nature. i.e. broken connector, wire, switch, jammed servo, shorted wires, disconnected antenna...

Re: solar flares

Any solar flares that affect our radios would also affect a lot of other stuff, and there would be general upsets all around.

I agree 100% with Moo, it's usually something broken.
