PRSS to Offer Internet Streams In Event of Solar Disruptions

Back to top

The PRSS is monitoring reports that a series of geomagnetic (solar) storms may occur beginning today (Sept. 12) and lasting through the weekend. We do not expect that these storms will affect stations’ broadcast operations, but to alleviate any concerns, the PRSS NOC has made available these shows on Internet streams for those stations experiencing disruptions. The links went live at 12:00 ET, Friday, September 12, and will be active through Monday, September 15.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the PRSS Help Desk at 800.971.7677 or
