    Direct TV Installed in the rain??

    Hi everyone,
    I will be switching from Dish Network to Direct TV today. My question is, will the Direct TV installers install the dish, cables in the rain? It will be raining here in Chicago all day and was hoping to get my new service today, but with the rain, they may have to reschedule, right??
    Thanks for the info!

    I would hope, that they are smart enough to keep from installing anything in the rain Scott...

    OSHA would really have a ball writing up the Company that would permit their people to install in dangerous conditions or places. The cost could be well over $10,000.00 for that kind of violation..

    Usually an installer will reschedule, if there exists any conditions which are dangerous to the installer (lightning) or a condition exists which would adversly affect signal quality (rain), among other things.

    When I was having my dish installed, it started raining in the middle of the installation. He completed the work, but went very slowly because the ladder was wet and he was already scared of heights. Plus my roof is two stories up! I felt sorry for the guy.
