There will be brief mid-day service outages during the first few weeks of February and March 2021, due to solar interference.

Dear Talia customers,

This notice is to inform that there will be brief mid-day service outages during few weeks of February and  March 2021, due to solar interference. This is a normal part of satellite operation and it cannot be avoided.

About solar interference

Twice each year, near the spring and fall equinoxes, the sun crosses the equatorial plane. At these times, the sun aligns directly behind geosynchronous satellites for a few minutes each day. When the sun moves directly behind the satellite relative to your receive antenna, the satellite signal can be overwhelmed by the enormous amount of radio frequency (RF) noise radiated by the sun. This can cause reception interference which briefly and temporarily degrades your satellite signal. You may experience several minutes of service interruption during this time.
