Heads Up: Some producers’ GPS farming systems may be down today

A heads up: GPS farming systems could be down for some producers today.

There is a new geostationary satellite going up to replace a Wide Area Augmentation System, or WAAS, currently sending signal corrections. The switchover only affects those using WAAS transmissions.

You will have to manually switch your settings to the new satellite or update your settings to automatic.

If you have questions about how to do that, contact your equipment manufacturer.
