Service interruption of some individual channels will occur for approximately 10-15 minutes during the late afternoon hours through October 15 due to solar interference. During the interference, reception will range from minor sparkles to loss of reception or picture freezing.
Solar interference occurs each calendar year in both the spring and the fall.
What channels are affected and when will vary through October 15.
