The autumn sun outage season starts in October
The sun outage season will start next month and continue throughout the month of October. During this period, and depending on geographical location, service on satellite downlinks 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.
