That map/radar is ROFL

Mine went out last night during the Packer/Chargers game.

Now I just checked the forecast for tonight and more showers are do in. :banghead:

Sounds like rain fade on a Tivo unit.

Out of curiosity, what frequency range do DBS signals fall under?

I've always wondered about this, as I have never had any trouble with reception or fade out unless I have more that 3-4 inch's of snow on the dish. Even when we lived in KC area, during the worst of rain storms, I never had any trouble.

I would think that at this location far north with the dish having to go through more atmosphere I would be very susceptible to interference. :shrug:

I'm not sure exactly but it is somewhere betwen 1400-2000 MHz.

I had my reception go out for a couple of minutes a few days back when a bad rain storm initially started coming down but had no problems after it re-aquired the signal

Bob Dole's DirecTivo seems much more subject to rain fade than the plain old receiver was.

Doesn't make much sense to Bob Dole, since it's the same damned dish, but that's what it seems like.

They call it a Phase III multisat dish. It can receive sat signals from three different satellites, 101, 110, and 119. In the midwest, 101 carries all the "cable channels". 110 is for HD channels and 119 has the locals, Spanish channels and a few other obscure channels. There are at least two companies making these dishes but they all do the same thing.

I've never had a problem with my Dtv fading out.

It's set very nicely under the eave and never takes any hits from the elements.
