Sun Outages

We are at that time of year again when the position of the sun in the sky will cause brief interuptions of the cable TV service.  This occurs in mid-afternoon and lasts no longer than 15 - 20 minutes.  Not all channels will be affected at the same time.  It depends on which satellite the various channel's signal comes off of.  If you experience poor reception or complete loss of signal in mid-afternoon please be patient and the channel should come back on shortly.

Customer Originated trace

 

How it works:  when you receive a harassing call, you can dial a simple code to tract the source of that call. 

  1. After receiving a call you want to trace, hang up the receiver to end the call.
  2. Pick up the receiver and listen for the dial tone.  You must trace the call before another call is received.
  3. Press *57 (rotary phones dial 1-1-5-7) and follow the voice-recorded instructions.
  4. Stay on the line and listen for a recording that tells you if Call Trace was activated and if the call was successfully traced.
  5. Once you have successfully traced the call contact your local law enforcement agency and report.
