LOS times

Hi all, I have been watching NASA TV and i have noticed that when ever the
shuttle is over the Indian Ocean there is a Loss Of Signal for about 20
minutes. Why is that? Do they not have a TDRS relay sat over there and if
not why not? 
Just curious.
I have not heard anything from SAREX transmitters and I have listened for
every pass close to Arkansas. Last night I listen like crazy and heard
nothing even though It passed 17 degrees above the horizon!
I am using a dual-band J-Pole anntenna on a 60 ft tower with 50 watts
output, is this enough?
