After reading on a Space Weather website, one of the opening paragraphs caught my eye...

...On the NOAA scale of radiation storms, this one ranks S3, which means it could, e.g., cause isolated reboots of computers onboard Earth-orbiting satellites and interfere with polar radio communications.

Could this have any effect on GPS Question

Yes, there is a chance. I recall some news stories (probably over-blown!!) about it late last year.

Andy_P is very good at searching the forums and/or using Google so we'll wait for him to arrive Very Happy
