Thread-topic: [CRTech] Solar Outage Season?
I didn’t see a way to update it to 105°.  
I use http://www.satellite-calculations.com/Satellite/suninterference.php.  
Pick satellite by position in sky and be sure to select C band if not already so.

We were supposed to enter the window today with the peak time about 12:32pm.  Looking at the 15-minute summary on the Amb-OS receiver, we had minimum EbN0s and maximum BERs today at 12:30 – the 12:15 reading was similar.

Then for an unknown reason we lost lock at 1:15pm – EbN0s were below 10 from 6:45am to 5:15pm here.  Every other sample was at least a “perfect” 10!

Both XDS receivers looking at AMC-18 had tuner unlocks sometime today.  Our program schedule happens to be such that we're not going to notice these too much this time except tomorrow during a football game.

Hey, this part of the CRTech site is still referencing 139 degrees West for the other radio satellite. Is there a way for someone to update this for the new bird at 105 degrees?

Hey Guys: 

Are we in the solar outage season?  What website do you use to get the outage information (as it relates to satellite reception)?

Thanks!
Steve
