Nothing you put on the dish can ever reduce a blackout condition. You can put something near the dish to reflect the snow, but unless you have something to cover the 25,000 mile long path from the dish to the satellite, this is the only thing you can do. Just have your dish signal peaked as much as possible is the biggest thing you can do to help it not happen as quick. Also, the bigger the dish, the more stamina it will have in the storms. I personally have a Starband dish and using it for my Dish Net signals only. Because it is bigger, and has more of a reflectivity space, blackout or rain fade does not happen near as quickly.
