|Sky or Freesat Satellite Dish Problems with the Snow
|Hi this is a winter problem you might get with your sky or freesat dish .
We had some snow the other day and it had a bit of wind behind it .
So what you might say, well, the phone went red hot with customers phoning in that they had lost their satellite pictures.
Well, what we found was that if the snow collects on the satellite dish in a certain way, which is along the arm and in front of the LNB the signal drops.

So, if you can get at the dish gently brush the snow off it. Don't be harsh as you might knock the dish out of alignment.
You should find normal reception is resumed.
