those signals are ok for fair weather, but wont stand up looking through any yellows or reds on your local weather radar. Signals in the high 80s and mostly 90s will keep your picture through the yellows, but nothing will keep the picture through the reds (by reds, Im referring to the red on your local weather radar, when the red is between your dish and the satellite).

Well it wasn't storming when I took the pics of the signal levels. But it did storm yesterday evening, and I'm guessing the sky's were still covered pretty good. Because I look at all 3 signal pages today, and everything ranged from 87-94. So thats looks to be good. I just don't understand how easy the HD goes out sometimes still.
My setup is 2 HD boxes, and 2 HD DVRs. I'm guessing the reasoning behind the loss of signal when someone is mowing grass close to the big splitter, the motor from the lawn mower causes this issue.
