Every year, in the Spring and again in the Fall, the public radio satellite system experiences what is known as a solar outage. During a solar outage, the signal we receive can be temporarily blocked for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. If we are carrying a live program (such as Here & Now), you may hear a temporary bit of silence or a short recorded message we play announcing the outage.
The next outage season should run March 3rd-6th for Maryland.
