Am I correct in thinking this is the time of year where the sun obliterates different sats throughout the day?
Around 2:40pm my time at long. 78W I lost signal on 101W. A few minutes the same on 103W. Then it came back on 101.
Yeah? No? Birds? Drones? Too early for a blizzard!

I guess this is what killed SES2 at 87W this afternoon for me. The calculator says so. And I thought it was the rain. By the time I motored my other dish over to look at 87W, the signal was recovering and I wrongly thought the larger dish was why.

It happens for me for about 8 minutes at around 1:42 pm ET for the next 5 days too.

You are correct. I work at a teleport in Alaska, we just finished our sun outage period we use orbital position 139 degrees. At it's worst, the noise floor came up 25 db almost enough to completely cover every downlink signal.
