  AT&T satellite facilities will be experiencing
sun related service degradation's as a result of
the alignment of the sun with our
telecommunications satellite and ground stations.
 Sun outages occur for a few days semi-annually
when our satellite passes directly between the
antenna on earth and the sun.  Radio frequency
noise from the sun is stronger than the desired
signal from the satellite, resulting in a brief
service interruption.
