    Severe weather moved through the Gilbert, AZ area a little after 7:30 pm MDT, disrupting the signal at the uplink center. About a half-hour later, the weather moved off and signal was restored.

    It would be helpful if DISH had a backup site in a different location to upload in the event the primary site was having problems. I would hope that this is the case. It is just good business sense to not have to rely on a single site to upload everything.

    Ever since friday evening channel 122 syfi has been out for us here in nw wa. We keep getting codes 015 and 002 sometimes 004. Have called dish and one agent says they are having a problem with that channel and another can't figure it out so sending tech. Seems that we(Dish) are not all on the same page. so guess will pay the $15 for tech and see what happens. Not happy with all the problems we have been having with Dish lately!

    So the Dish tech came out and found that the first installer used the old Directv mount and apparently Dish mount is different and the dish was moving around in the wind...probably still get charged $15 for call out but at least it works now.

    It does not make any sense to me that you would only lose one station if the dish was moving around. I would think that if the dish moved, you would lose everything.... :confused:

    It depends on how it is aimed and where the channels are. The dish could move just enough to lose one satellite position and not another. Or weaken the signal from one satellite enough that stronger transponders would still be received and channels on weaker transponders would be lost.
