Twice each year the sun lines up directly behind our Satellite and our receiving dishes and the intense radiation from the sun disrupts the signal for a few minutes each day during an 4 to 5 day period. We are currently experiencing the Fall outage period which occurs around 1:26 p.m CT for our area of the nation. We will restore the signal as soon as possible after each outage. We appreciate your patience. The Next outage will occur in March.
