Have had a couple of brief losses of signal... about 2 minutes shortly after 5:30pm EDT and again for another 3-4 minutes around 6:40pm EDT.

 

Looked, and sure enough more weather in Cheyenne, WY at or near the uplink site...  so eastern arc customers (like me) at least may have experienced brief outages and could possibly see some more before the weather clears.

 

I do swear this is happening more this year than I can remember in years past... but then I have only been on eastern arc about 1.5 years now...  I was on western arc until last February.

There is a very large weather system battering the eastern slopes of the Rockies from Guadalupe National Park in Texas all the way up to Wyoming - very heavy rains.

I wasn't home for a long time yesterday... so I missed any weather outbreaks and fortunately wasn't recording anything so I wasn't around to see problems yesterday.

 

I started this on Thursday just in case anyone else noticed problems then... but that turned out to be a non-event as I didn't have any more problems after that post.

Strangely enough, I didn't notice any outages... I was watching a LiL earlier for the Alabama/Texas A&M game... but after that ended I had it on ESPNHD until just a few minutes ago... and I can't remember seeing any glitches.  But that weather looked nasty!
