Anyone have any idea if it's really safe to use Pam on the dish so snow won't stick. or is there anything else .

Were getting snow over here and I am hopeing that it clears up in the next few days to hop up on the roof and spray away!

thanks

For that kind of money, it is better to go with the proven snow solution, which is a Dish Heater.

I live in a wet, sticky snow area, and a Dish Heater is the only thing that works. (there is a thread from last week started by a canadian, which has links for heaters).

* Especially for a dish on the roof! * :eek:

if I could get a heater for $50 that would be worth it, but the 1000+ is kinda big and i doubt that a heater will cost less then $100 or so.

A much cheaper solution is to use Silicone spray on your dish. I have been using it for about 10 years and it works very well. The only down side is that you may have to apply it a couple of times a season. I usually spray the dishes in November and then again in January. Don't spray the LNBs.

"Ice Zapper" Dish Heater is $65 including shipping from two different sources - do a web search - one source may be cheaper depending on your state (sales tax).

I just ordered one because of being forced to add a second dish for locals, due to distant networks injunction.

I'll post a review of it to this Forum, once I install it and snow occurs. :)

I'm already using a different brand on my Dish500...
