We are expecting icy conditions here in Kentucky and southern Indiana tonight. I've been with Directv since 94 my old dish i would just (knock,tap hard enough to break the ice off the dish.) They are predicting 1/4 inch or more for my area i have only had my HD dish for 3 months what is the best way to protect the dish and LNB's from thicker than average ice. I am afraid with very thick ice and tapping to get it off the lnb's and screwing them up. Luckily my dish is close to the ground any advice would be helpful.
