Sun Transit Period - Spring 2016
As many of you are probably aware, with the arrival of spring, we are approaching the sun transit period for spring 2016.
This is the time of the year where for a short period in the afternoon, the sun, the satellite and our satellite dish will be in a straight line for a few minutes. During this time, radio emission from solar radiation will cause enough interference with the signal from the satellite to interrupt the Internet service. This year, the sun transit period will begin on February 25 and end on March 4. We will see service degradation as early as 3:14PM up to 3:29PM.
