Getting a bigger dish might help my household reception, but I also have another problem. We have a motorhome with a dome over what is probably a 5 or 6 inch dish. We experience the same type of rainfade. Any ideas for that?
Being a novice what size dish would you recommend and where can I read up on it?
PS Didn't know the "freaky fonts" were so objectionable. I'll do better in the future.
The solution for me seems to be 3 years of drought conditions. I have lost signal maybe 3-4 times since I signed up in July 2004. It has to be a pretty big storm to make me lose signal. Unlike my OTA antenna which drops out in a light fog.
After signing up again in Feb. I really was worried about the rain fade. That's what caused my dislike way back in the early days. I have an AT9 dish and hadn't seen any except the other day when I was sitting and it just started pouring like crazy. Out went the signal. Great, here we go again.
Fortunately, I watch mostly network shows so I have an HD OTA antenna set up. Out of curiosity, I switched over to those channels and not a problem at all. It took a lot of effort get a good HD OTA signal but it sure was worth it as a backup for those rain fade days. I guess they were never gone for good.
