Is 78 and a power in the low 80's seem decent for a medium but constant rain? Or should I cry and get a bigger dish? Im normally in the upper mid 90's. I just flew threw the house on a quick lunch break and didnt really have time to see if there were any problems with the picture in the brief time I viewed it.

As long as you do not see pixelation in the picture and losing picture, you should be ok. I had like three picture losses during heavy rain with an 18" disk here in NYC. Since it has not been constant and those picture losses lasted only a few seconds, I am staying with the 18" dish.


I Think, therefore, I am.

I have 24" dish and I'd be happier than a pig in snot if I had your numbers during a rainfall.
