2012 Fall Sun Interference

news | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011


Akron, OH – October 4, 2012 We are now reaching the time of year when our teleport and our customers experience short solar outages. These solar outages are caused by radiation from the sun which over powers all signals when the sun is perfectly aligned with the satellite and receive antenna.

The outages at our teleport in Akron, OH will occur between October 6th and October 10th.
