    Yeah, the snow stuck to my 10' C-band mesh dish up here in New Hampshire. I quickly learned to move the dish to C4 or C1 (almost straight out horizontal) everytime a snowstorm was coming and S3 (pointing much higher in the sky) when it was wind on the way.

    Do you just leave the heater on all winter, just during storms?

    When we lived on a mountaintop, I programmed a bogus satellite for our 15' Hughes mesh C-band dish that flipped it over to a comfortable angle for cleaning the snow off with a long handled shop broom. It was the trudge through the snow to get to it that was the biggest hassle. At our Adirondack cottage now, our 1000.4 is only about 10 feet from our motorhome, making it an easy path to shovel for cleaning. I've only had to clean it off once this winter so far, and hopefully we'll be in the motorhome driving south before it needs it again!
