new twist! I am assuming it is due to the weight of snow on the dish, but my signal has been holding 90% better. I say 90 because it is still breaking up but much much less. Signal disparity is closer to a 20 differential vs the typicl 30. Now in low 70's on a couple even transponders. I wish I dove into this a few months back when it was abouve freezing, and no snow on the roof. Also kind of wish I had mounted it to the chimney which is on opposite end of house. Would just involve re-running cables in attic, but would be a much sturdier and les wind exposed mount. But that is not happening this winter. I also wish I wasn't getting a vasectomy tomorrow so I could work on this. Ah well, at least I can call in my box while laying in bed.

Once your coax is cut, your dish won't output any more signals.... :)

Boy that was fun. At least I am getting my HD channels on my one tuner currently.
