How is DISH network service in bad weather? I live in Florida, and it rains a lot. We have hurricanes too.
Hi, I am in the Orlando area and we get very heavy sea breeze thunderstorms during the summer. When a really strong storm with thick dark cloud cover approaches from the SW I get signal loss. On a few occasions, with slow moving powerful storms, I have lost signal for about 1/2 hour. Sometimes when we lose signal I can get a spotbeam local.
My normal clear day readings on TP 11 & 12 are: 119: 118-123 and 110: 113-116. So these are pretty good for clear day reception.
I have installed a Winegard SS-2000 outdoor antenna and added a Sumsung SIR-T451 for HDTV backup in such situations. OTA local reception on HD signals is not interrupted by the storms
Be yourself -- no one else wants the job.

Im in Tucson,AZ however and right now were at the peak of our monsoon season. daily Thunder and electrical storms with drak storm clouds and heavy downpours.
When these storms move thru I first get intermittent signal loss messages reported by the 522 on the TV screen then It gets worse and the trying to acquire Sat signal screen comes up and it acquires signal and loses it and repeats process. At its worse the screen goes black and I have to wait for the storm to pass befor It can reaquire the signal.
These storms are fast moving and im only losing the signal for about 5 mins when they are directly overhead.
I noticed now when I run a check switch it passes but has a info page that shows two dates and times that tuner 2 loss signal.
These are not the dates of the most recent storms.
does this indicate I have a real intermittent problem with tuner 2 ?
