Ropsten eth_subscribe for new block headers not working

After opening web socket connection and successfully subscribing to new headers (see below) i am currently not receiving any data. Ive noticed this has been intermittently working since the Istanbul hard fork on ropsten. Other subscriptions like newPendingTransactions seem to be consistently working.

> wscat -c wss://<my-id>
connected (press CTRL+C to quit)
> {"jsonrpc":"2.0", "id": 1, "method": "eth_subscribe", "params": ["newHeads"]}
< {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"result":"0x1"}
