Ok awesome! Thanks man. I was thinking the same thing about the cooking spray. That was recommended by a dish tech. And all i was thinking was. Wont that get grit stuck to it more. And I got some rain-x on hand when the time comes. Still a month away from snowing but I am ready!

I wonder if those few trees you cut down yesterday might have been responsible for the data loss...?  Hopefully they figure it out.  Amanda is one of the best I have seen at getting issues resolved. Smiley Happy

you can buy a dish heater thats electric if you dont mind spending a hundred dollars for it and then have it installed.

Charles, it's recommended by engineering (i remember a post in the group) that we stay away from dish heaters because they COULD affect the signal, it's one those things that are iffy as to whether it's worth it or not.  If this was TV that's a different story, but, we transmit too, and that's what can get messed up apparently.

I also read somewhere, don't know if true, that they can actually warp these new thin metal dishes. Maybe total nonsense, just passing it along.

I think nonsense the more I think about it. Shouldn't get warm enough to do it.

Sgoshe,

This could be true. Compared to the dishes we had during KU/KA days to the dishes that were re-vamped for Jupiter service, they are significantly lighter and thinner.

sgoshe, they get just warm enough to try and keep the temp slightly above freezing, but if it's too cold they just flat out dont work at all.

Yea, I'll stick with spraying windshield washer/deicer. It works and very cheap at about $1/gallon most places.

could be right, the one I saw was an overlay that fit the back of the dish so it would have to be installed by an installer
