WHY!!!

Recommended Posts

:angry:  With all of the knowledge that is used with satellites I don't understand why a drop of rain or a flake of snow blocks out a simple signal from the satellite.  What would happen if the world could not use satellites for the universe?

Because electromagnetic waves travel best through a vacuum, just like a bullet will travel further and faster when shot through the air instead of under water. 

If your system is cutting out during a light rain, then you are either on the fringe of your satellite's footprint, or your system isn't aimed and or mounted properly.

It takes a hell of a storm to knock me out.  That goes for Hughesnet, and DirecTV.
