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:

i will have to look into the aiming thing. but i check the transponders and they are all in the high 90s cept for right now where the biggest signal i get it like 23.
