Maybe your dish isn't aimed correctly. If it's not aimed DIRECTLY at the sat, your signal strength will be lower even when it is working...so it won't take as many clouds to knock it out.

I have ExpressVu here in Canada, and my dish hardly ever goes out except for a few minutes during the peak of a really strong t-storm.

I don't know about hurricanes, though...I bet mine would go out :smirk:

How big is your dish?
