Title: Sun Conjunction Time Again
Post by USN - Retired on Sep 27th, 2008 at 11:54pm
Just a reminder, the sun interference cycle will be starting soon. Sun interference calculators are available online and for download, I personally like this one:  
Intelsat sun outage calculator.
Hint: even though the effects diminish as dish diameter increases, sun interference affects your NOC too. After you obtain the date/time predictions for interference at your location, replace your lat/lon with those of your NOC (but keep the same time zone). Don't know their antenna sizes, but I'm pretty sure they don't have anything less than 3 meters.
