    Best solution for keeping snow off my dish

    I did some poking around and found a few threads, but nothing seemed very current. I was curious what is recommended as the best solution for heating my dish to keep off unwanted snow and ice. Last night we had our first wet heavy snow and I lost signal. I finally got a few channels back around 930 today, but still not everything. I started to looking in to heating solution and found a few that you may stick on the back of the dish, other say they use a few flood lamps when needed. I am just curious to see what others do when the dish is on the roof. I am looking to be efficient and also cost effective if possible. thanks

    I use Car wax the paste type. Also heard that rain-x works good too.

    I'm still trying to decide if it's more important to clear the dish or clear the LNBs.

    The old way is still the best way: a dish heater.
