2016 Fall Sun Outage Notification - It's that time of year again when Sun Outage may temporarily disrupt satellite TV and Internet communications. This occurs twice a year during the spring and fall as the sun lines up directly in line with the earth's belt of geosynchronous communications satellites over the equator and ground-based antennas sending and receiving satellite TV and Internet signals. More information on sun outage can be found here:

There will actually be two periods of outages: First a primary outage period when the sun lines up with satellites and receiving antennas in the Los Cabos area, followed by intermittent outages as the sun lines up with satellites and individual transmitting sites spread throughout the US. At its peak, the outages can last up to 18 minutes per satellite. In the Los Cabos region, the outages for each satellite will begin around 8AM to 1PM, with primary outages from September 27 to October 06, followed by intermittant outages through October 15. You can calculate sun outages for specific satellites at your location here: ☞ The Baja Western Onion, bajawesternonion (- at -), Baja California Sur,

Submitting Paid Ads Without Payment - Please note that we will no longer run ads submitted as "Paid Ads" without receiving payment for the ad.

We prefer to function on "The Honor System," but there have been too many instances of our running ads submitted as Paid ads, and then not receiving payment for them. This becomes a bookkeeping headache for us to try and keep track and pursue payment for Paid ads already run.

Upon submitting your Paid Ad, there is a link on the Ad confirmation page where you can submit your payment via our preferred payment method, PayPal. PayPal is safe, secure, and ensures your payment gets processed instantly.

This is also a reminder that Free Ads for the same individual, subject, item, event or business cannot be resubmitted more frequently than one issue every 14 days. If we did not have this policy, each issue of the Baja Western Onion would quickly be over-run with repeat information and become less readable and useful to our readers. It would also be unfair to our Paid Advertising Sponsors who pay for the privilege to be included in each issue.

As always, thanks for your understanding and support of The Baja Western Onion. ☞ Alan And Debra, bajawesternonion (- at -),, The Baja Western Onion
