Service interruption of some individual channels may occur for approximately 10 minutes during the late afternoon hours now through October 15 due to solar interference.
During the interference, reception may 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 over the next 10-15 days.
