    Im in the Roselle area and lost signal for a bit last night..actually i dozed off around 11 and woke up to no signal a couple hrs later but then it came back..not sure how long it was out..
    Since I got a Dish 100 I dont have half the outage issues I had before with my 500 dish..the planes going to and from O' Hare use to wreak havoc with my signal

    Prob the storms. Even if it does not rain or the rain is light if the cloud cover is very heavy you can lose signal. If your Dish is not "perfectly" pointed (few are LOL) this can also contribute.

    If this ever happens just check your signal and see what you are getting.

    I have no signal at all coming though..called dish and they said i could either wait it out seeing that its cloudy or they could send someone out..seeing i have had worse weather before and it has worked pretty good..i opted they should send someone out..so now i have to wait until Fri..for service if it does not come back on by itself..
