Study Finds Sun Disrupts Wireless

A new study shows that bursts of energy from the Sun can cause dropped calls for cell phone users. The problem has to do with the fact that cell phone towers, by necessity, face the horizon. Those that face east or west look directly into the Sun at sunrise or sunset. If a burst occurs then, the tower is unable to sort out wireless calls from unwanted signals. Which, for commuters, could mean isolation during drive-time.
