Satellite Solar Outage Time Again – October 2018

Its that time of year again when the Sun / Solar Outage affects satellite signals on a morning.

This happens in March and October for a couple of weeks every year at around 10.30 – 11.30 am for upto 20 mins……

This “satellite solar outage” happens around the time of the Spring and Autumn equinox. In the northern hemisphere, sun outages occur before the March equinox (February, March) and after the September equinox (September and October).

Do not panic, your temporary loss of signals will resolve itself and just start working again as soon as the sun moves out of the position




It is also a good time for a bit of housekeeping, as you can use this outage time to see if there are any trees and shrubs casting shadows onto the dish, which means they can be reducing and blocking the signals from the satellite to your dish.
