The GOES satellite reception will be problematic over the next few weeks. 
First, there's a 3 hour mode where the sun shines right into the 
satellite "iris", so NESDIS shuts the bird off. Second, NOAAPORT goes down 
for about an hour each day for the next few weeks due to the related "sun 
outages" as well.

These messages have been sent regularly on NOAAPORT for the last 2 weeks. 
If they occur at the same time each day, that's probably what you're 
experiencing.
