    Long time customer (1997). Seems my rain fade issues are worse than I ever remember them and was wondering if someone could comment on my signal strengths. I'm pole mounted with a completely unobstructed view. Slimline dish is level. Weather was overcast with very light drizzle when these were recorded. Thanks.

    Your dish is way out of alignment. The 99c and 103ca and cb numbers should be in the 90's.

    You should compare these readings to when it is a clear day.
    Reason is that it can be raining at your house and not go out and other times not raining at all and go out. I have this happen to me once in awhile when there is a strong system moving in from the Gulf of Mexico and it gets between the dish and the satellite before the rain actually gets to me. When the cloud is over me and raining hard the picture comes back because the mass of water in the cloud is now not between the dish and the satellite.

    If the numbers are not up when it is clear it definitely needs aligning as Davenlr already stated.

    Looks like it's time for a Dish Alignment "tuneup".
