The build up of wet, sticky a ow on our satellite dish blocked the signal. Over dinner we discussed how we could clear the dish, and it turns out it’s only about 10 or 12 feet from a second floor bedroom window. So, we taped three (3) broom handles together and then I reached out of the window with my extend-o-broom and brushed the snow off. It worked like a charm, the signal was back!
We’ve already had to brush the dish off twice more to keep our receivers from losing signal. On top of that, we’ve had to shovel snow out from in front of doors so that we’ll be able to open them tomorrow!
This is pretty crazy; some areas are getting 5 to 6 inches if snow … an hour!
