Autumn 2021 sun outages

Make sure you are ready for the autumn 2021 sun outage season

The sun outage season will start in the next few days and continue through October 2021. Over the next few weeks, depending on your geographical location, the service on your satellite downlink might experience a short disturbance due to interference from the sun when it falls directly behind a satellite.

Whilst Eurovision Services has secured its teleports for this period in order to guarantee uninterrupted services, we cannot monitor sun outages for all reception points. We therefore invite you to check when sun outages will occur for your reception sites and take the necessary steps if they are likely to affect any of your transmissions. You can find numerous free-of-charge tools on the internet that allow you to calculate times for your location. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or special requests.
