It is that time of the year agsin.

The suns path across the sky takes it along the Clarke Belt, that line in the Sky where all the geostationary satellites are.

This means that the sun passes behind the satellites, so the satellites, sun and your dish are all in alignment.

And when it does, its energy can swamp out those weaker signals. And cause a temporary loss of those weaker channels.

At the moment, for UK TV satellite this is about 1130 to 1145 am.

This event also happens around March time.

IT is also a good time to see if your satellite dish needs some TLC. If during this time there are any shadows from trees and shrubs on the dish face, then trim them back, as they may be interfering with the signals reaching the dish.
