Would it be obvious if the wind moved my dish?
Posted 20 May 2007 - 03:59 AM
it's overcast out, but nothing abnormal.
I run a test of the sat and most of the signals on the 101 are in the low 30's mid 50's with an zero or two and the odd 80.
the 110 and 119 are all low 90's.
Apparently it was very windy the past few days. I have access to the dish so I took a look at it and gave it a shake. Nothing moved when i tugged on it. If I couldn't move it I couldn't imagine the wind moving it, but who knows. If the wind did move the dish would it be noticeably loose?
I can't think of any other reason why I'd lose signal off the 101 but still have clear strong 110 and 119.
