Solar interference will cause slight loss of signal in February and March
Published Saturday, February 3, 2018
The first sign of Spring is right around the corner. Starting on February 27th and lasting until March 11th, Cable TV operators experience a few days of solar interference with the video reception from satellites we receive. This results in the degradation or loss of satellite signal for short periods. Solar interference is an inherent part of satellite operations. The effects are seen on most channels and occur during various times of the day. Interruptions can last from just a few minutes to up to 15 minutes a day.
