Spring Solar Outages Possible This Week on KSKA

Please be advised that that the spring solar outage season began on February 26 and will run through March 13.

A solar or sun transit outage is an electromagnetic phenomenon wherein a station is temporarily unable to receive a satellite signal due to interference from the sun as it passes behind the satellite.

Solar outages occur in the U.S. for about five consecutive days, for as much as six minutes a day, twice each year.

KSKA is attempting to avoid these outages by airing recorded programming at these times, but live newcasts between 9:00 am and 10:00 am through Sunday, March 13 continue to be affected.

If you hear a drop out during a newscast, please be patient as KSKA programming will resume momentarily.
