If you live in the greater Ajijic-Chapala area, you probably had quite a bit of rain tonight. Did you loose your satellite TV signal? Were you not able to watch satellite TV tonight? That's sad, because persons who had sufficient signal strength, as you have up North, didn't loose their TV signals. Do your remember when up north when it rained this hard? You still had TV from Star Choice and/or Dish Network didn't you? Yes. Why? Because your satellite dish was large enough to ensure that when it did rain and your signal was attenuated to perhaps only 25% of normal, that strength was still strong enough to give you TV during this heavy rain. Lakeside, often satellite dealers provide sufficiently sized satellite dishes to provide good reception during good weather, but not sufficiently sized to provide reception during heavy rain and that's sad. Did I have good reception during the rain? I did on C band, where the rain has very little effect, and I did on Star Choice, because my satellite dish was large enough. Sadly my DISH Network feeds failed, because the satellite dishes were not large enough. So if you are going to be around during the rainy season and don't want to loose your satellite signal during those heavy rains, insist that your satellite dealer install a large enough satellite dish to work during heavy rains like they do north of the border when it rains hard.
