During what rare celestial event may we not experience a satellite solar outage if it happens to occur at the same time?

It is the semi-annual event, spring and fall, where the sun "moves" directly "behind" the satellite, and it's RF noise overwhelms the actual satellite signal. The effect generally only lasts a few minutes each day, until the sun "moves" above the satellite arc in spring (which has now done, in CT) or below the arc in fall.
It is also a good time (on a sunny day) to see if there is ANYTHING obstructing your dish's direct "view" of the satellite... when the sun is right behind the bird, the shadow of the feedhorn will be in the dead-center of your dish. If there are any other shadows (trees, buildings, wires, etc) in the dish, this is when you will see these potential obstructions! :)

It is Spring sun outage time. Not sure when it is in Florida. I believe we are through that period here in Oregon.

Anyone else seeing solar interference the last few days. I believe it is affecting our unity 4000. Just checking to see if anyone else was having similar issues.
