Signal Dropout Question

Over the last 2 days, I've been having some extended dropouts and I'm curious about something regarding 119 and 110.

First, I should mention that there has been a fair amount of storm activity in the area and I am also considering some trees that might be interfering, but they are some distance away and not perciptibly larger than in years past when I've had no problem.

But what I am curious about is this, if rain fade or trees are to blame, would I get strong signals from some TPs and not others?

For example, all of my receivers are refusing to lock in any channels, but my signal strength on 119 is as follows:

1: 0
2: 112
3: 0
4: 109
5: 0
6: 112
7: 0
8: 112
9: 0
10: 113


etc...

Actually, now that I see the even/odd relationship of this, might I have a hardware problem? An LNB perhaps...

Any advise is appreciated...

I have been seeing some of the same numbers on 119 till I get above TP 10 then it goes up and 110 starts to drop.When first installed no problems getting in the 115 to 125 on both 110 and 119 and 129 was in the 75 to 80 now lucky to hit 75

Could be the dish problem, I think your dish is at the roof, if you can, go up and check if the dish has dropped a bit or something, I did have a customer at Plano with super dish that I had to raised the dish three degree to get the signal stable.
