    It may be due to some big storms in Wyoming.

    I'm not sure exactly where the uplink center is, but Cheyenne is getting pounded right now.

    Yep, huge thunderstorms are training over the Cheyenne, WY area, so don't worry about your local equipment.

    In particular, this is happening over DISH's uplink center right now:

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHEYENNE HAS ISSUED A

    * SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FOR...
    SOUTHERN GOSHEN COUNTY IN SOUTHEAST WYOMING...
    NORTHEASTERN LARAMIE COUNTY IN SOUTHEAST WYOMING...

    * UNTIL 400 PM MDT

    * AT 322 PM MDT...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WERE LOCATED ALONG A LINE
    EXTENDING FROM 9 MILES WEST OF HAWK SPRINGS RECREATION AREA TO 9
    MILES SOUTHEAST OF CHUGWATER...AND MOVING SOUTHEAST AT 15 MPH.

    HAZARD...QUARTER SIZE HAIL.

    SOURCE...RADAR INDICATED.

    IMPACT...DAMAGE TO VEHICLES IS EXPECTED.

    * LOCATIONS IMPACTED INCLUDE...
    LA GRANGE AND MERIDEN REST AREA.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    FOR YOUR PROTECTION MOVE TO AN INTERIOR ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR OF A
    BUILDING.

    TORRENTIAL RAINFALL IS OCCURRING WITH THESE STORMS...AND MAY LEAD TO
    FLASH FLOODING. DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE THROUGH FLOODED ROADWAYS!


    It's that last bit in particular that's causing problems.

    Radar is showing a couple more cells moving in, so it may drop out again.

    Saw several problems last night... but nothing happening here... so I kind of figured there must have been some uplink weather going on.

    I went out on me, watching something, went outside checked cables/things. Came back inside, looked at signal strengths slowly coming up from nothing, marching upward, then knew it NOT my equipment but sats or something else.

    Hard to believe those huge 30m dishes can be blocked by anything short of a tornado! Itty-bitty rain, wimps!!! :)

    Same thing happened to me in Cleveland. I though it was weird that the locals came in but none of the other channels on 129.

    It cleared up in a few minutes.

    Me too. Looks like very strong storms in the Cheyenne area right now. Nothing in my area except way to the northeast, which wouldn't affect my reception.

    I'm surprised dish doesn't have back up locations for when storms hit like that to keep this from being a national issue.
