I'm wondering if anyone has been losing signals lately. My wife says F3 goes away around 1300 MT everyday.

Yes, according to your location of 42N, we are at the tail end of the Solar Outage Spring Season.
Today should be minimal, if any.

Starting early this week just after one o'clock I could watched it hit one satellite after another in the one's that I have setup and it would last about 7-10 minutes depending on the satellite.

I've been getting hit daily for a week. Started early in the week around 12:30, today I got hit at 12:45. It usually lasts 10-15 min. I've been on 91w.

Hey StLouie I noticed it last week here, on 72W, around 9am it'd wash out my signal for 10min or so. I found that calculator last night and verified that it was "THAT TIME" of the year. It's funny how it can be raining cats and the sun still is powerful enough to wipe it out on ku.
