  I hope native Texans aren't as rare in Texas as native Floridians are here in Florida.  Of course we have another invasive species to deal with: the quarterback.  These are the people that move from up north to south Florida ( where the jobs are ), and then move a quarter of the way back to north Florida to retire.  Smiley Embarassed)>

I researched dish heaters a couple of years ago and they didn't seem to be all that good. I use a soft brush to gently clean snow and ice from the dish, and it works very well.

On the topic of snow, has anyone tried out a satellite dish heater? Does it work better than sweeping the snow off with one of those fuzzy things?

 

Any snow birds with an opinion? :-)

From what I've seen they can work, but are often too much of a hassle.  

 

Someone (BirdDog?) brought something up during a recent discussion on this, and that was regarding the idea of having electricity going to something outdoors, unprotected, and metal.  I don't relish the idea, personally.  

 

I do fine with a brush.  It can be a pain, but it is what it is.
