      High winds on dish

      Hi

      Before I go banging my head against a wall with Sky, just wondered if anyone can give me some general advise here.

      My house is in a quite exposed spot. This is the second winter that we have had sky, last winter the engineer had to come back to re-align the dish as the wind blew it off track. At the moment, although I don't think it has moved my picture is interupted constantly when the weather is bad which it has been recently.

      My dish is fastened to a side wall on a 'dog leg' type shaft which put's the dish just above the roof tiles.

      So my question is is there a better bracket type or a way of installing so that the dish isn't as affected by high winds ?

      Cheers
      Steve

      Hello Steve, are you sure it's the dish?

      We have the same problem/s, it wasn't the dish, it was the cable that attaches to the LMB that was getting water/rain into it.

      Good Luck.

      Hi

      Thanks for the thinking out of the box view !! - no I hadn't thought of that, but I doub't it as I am having the problem when it's windy and dry and not at all after rain. Surely if was wet, it would be a problem constantly or until it dried.

      cheers
      Steve
