Sun Outage

Posted on: September 17, 2007

Sun Outage is a Sun phenomenon. For a period of about 2 weeks, the sun causes “solar interference” to all geostationary satellite signals. As the sun’s path across the sky gets lower each day, there are times when it is in a direct line behind a communication satellite that is sending signals to a receiving satellite dish here on earth. When the dish antenna is looking into the sun, the interference from the sun overrides the signals from the satellite. This is when a sun outage occurs.Sun outages typically occur during the months of February/March and September/October and can last as long as 15 minutes a day and take place over a period of 15 days. The effects of a sun outage vary in degree from minimal to total outage throughout the 15 day period. Once it reaches its peak, the interference will gradually decrease becoming less noticeable each day after.

Sun Outage Effects

At first, the effects of a sun outage are minimal, beginning as “sparkles” in the picture during the first days. Gradually, it worsens to the point of total outage. Some channels will experience “blocks” or “freeze frames” in the picture before and after the peak times. These are the channels we receive digitally from the satellite
