The length and number of the outages depends on the latitude of the earth station and the diameter of the antenna. At an average latitude of 40 ° in the continental United States, and a I 0-meter antenna, the outages occur over 6 days with a maximum duration of 8 minutes each day. With a less directional 3-meter antenna, the outages occur over 15 days, with a maximum duration of 24 minutes. The times and durations of sun outages can be calculated precisely, ~but this requires the use of astronomical tables that are frequently not available in the broadcasting industry, An easier way is to obtain the information from the satellite carriers, all of which have developed computer programs for outage calculations.
