The birds in GEO and HEO (High Earth Orbit) are safe. It's the LEO ones-reconsats, for example, that would be vulnerable to ASAT attack.

As for timeline? Once the U.S. entered the war, that's when the F-15s with ASAT missiles got turned loose, and the Soviets responded with their ground-based system.
