We are considering changing from cable to Dish or DirectTV, to save money.
But one friend says that their satellite dish needs to be re-aligned after major storms, about once a month (in Maryland, near DC).
1. What fraction of sat dish customers have this problem? Please confine responses to those areas that sometimes have thunderstorms, but rarely have truly extreme weather.
2. Is there a an economically practical way to mount the dish so it isn't a problem? Method must not violate National Electric code. (I presume attic mounts loose too much signal strength?)
3. I see that they design motor-driven satellite dish antennas for RVs that self-align. How reliable are the various systems?
4. You could do the same thing electronically with an antenna array. Any comments on available systems?
5. What fraction of such customers have other weather problems - e.g., loss of signal in rain or snow?
