    Signal loss due to snow on dish

    I have been with dish for over 15 years, i have had a dish 500 and a 1000+. I was swithched to a 1000.4 when i upgraded to a 722k. Now today it is snowing and have lost signal several times due to snow on the dish. with the previous dish antenna's i never lost signal due to snow, have had to clean 3 times so far. Have other people that have had this 1000.4 antenna experienced the same issue? Is there something i can do to prevent snow build up? Thanks for any help.

    well i dont think there's a way to prevent snow to pile up on the dish, however you can give them a call and tell them that you constantly lose signal with snow, that is not normal, so they might suggest a tech visit to repeak dish, that should get your issue resolved.

    Snow is going to block the signal no matter what satellites you're looking at.

    There are two issues in play:

    1. You're 1000.4 is pointing about 10 degrees more skyward than the 1000.
    2. You're experiencing an uncharacteristically sloppy snow that is sticking to everything.

    Didn't they move a Football game to Mon. night because of the amount of snow you have gotten? Could this storm system be causing different conditions than experienced before?

    I lost signal once this morning when the snow was wet, but now it's 19 degrees and the snow just falls off of the 1k.4.

    Relocate the dish to the ground and pay the neighbor kid $1 to wipe it off when hes out playing.

    Issue resolved.

    In all honesty, its gonna happen. This is the main reason I like putting the dish on the ground/pole mount. lol301, it is normal in our area.
