Thanks for that one. It is typical for installations like that to be
affected. It's not the only broadcast network affected, I know of several.
I doubt much more will be said beyond the press release in any time soon.
Hopefully there will be a more detailed report, and if so, I would not
expect it to surface until maybe a few months on the earliest, but 6-12
months is maybe a little more realistic.
There is ways to make receivers more robust to this and a number of
similar data-errors. It will be interesting to see what GPS vendors do
to make their receivers more robust. It would be useful if there where a
standard set of improvements, as this would allow "checkboxing" that
help operators to get the right gear.
