Sun Outage Definition:
Sun outage is a natural phenomenon, which occurs twice a year (in the spring and fall) when the sun appears to
be passing directly behind the satellite as seen from a receiving earth station.
Since the sun is a potent source of radio frequency energy, the earth station’s receivers are overwhelmed by the
sun’s "noise" output and reception becomes impossible for a brief period of time, usually less than 10 minutes.
The duration and intensity of the outage will begin as a slight degradation in signal, increasing to a peak level
over several days and will then begin to reduce in intensity and duration over a similar period. These outages pose
no danger to earth station equipment and they are not related to sunspot activity.
