Yes, it can. Severe weather conditions can have an adverse effecton your satellite television system. Here is how different weatherconditions can affect a satellite television system: . Winter: This time of the year can be the worst environmentalenemy of a satellite system. Very cold weather can sl…ow down oreven totally spoil the satellite motor. This will obviously mean nopicture. Piling up of ice and snow can throw the dish out ofalignment and can even warp the dish itself. The actuator arm couldfreeze up which would mean that it will not swing around and willbe stuck in one position only. This will severely affect thepicture and quality. You could minimize some of these problems bytrying to keep snow from piling on to the dish. Do not scrape office but sweep it away if possible. Never under any circumstancesshould you use hot water or any water on the dish to melt the iceor snow. . Storms: Winds of high speeds can dis-align the satellite dishand disrupt your picture. Very bad storms such as a hurricane couldeven cause the dish to fall over. Lightning can also strike asatellite dish and cause it to malfunction. To avoid this you canuse a surge protector that will protect your dish from powerfluctuations. If you live in an area which has frequent storms orhigh velocity winds, then you should consider putting up a dishthat will withstand such conditions. . The Sun: The sun, the earth, and the satellites over theequator, come into alignment two times annually. At these times,solar outages occur which can affect the satellite dish. But thiscondition lasts for only few minutes at a time, over two weeks andis a problem only in the daytime and not during night. . Rain: Rain does not have much of an effect on a satellitetelevision system. A satellite system is mostly outdoors and thus these weatherconditions will have an effect on it. You can cover the system orbuild it in a shed to minimize problems. (MORE)
Powered Antenna . You can try a "powered antenna" which is available at electronics supply stores such as Radio Shack. Some of these have better signal gain than the passive type antennae. Good Luck.. Answer . \nplace antenna near window
What is the the principle of transmission and reception of satellite television broadcasting using geostationary satellites and dish aerials?
The principle of transmissibility of a force state that "the external effect of a force on a rigid body is a same for all point of application along its line of action, i.e. it is independent of the point of action.
Answer . No.. Answer . no they don't effect the weather but they keep track of the weather
Store bought. They have many different varieties. The best come with internal signal amplifiers. You can recognize these easily cause they usually cost more and have to be plugged in to a 120volt outlet. Be sure that the channels you want are all in the UHF band, some HD TV stations are still in the… VHF band (2-13). Some additional info, If you can see the transmitting tower from the roof or where your antenna is to be mounted, avoid the powered ones because the signal to the amplifier can be to strong for the it to handle.

If you can get a signal for your satellite Internet service, then without a doubt, you can also get a signal for satellite TV service AND the other way around also. The one thing you must know is that a no matter what anyone tells you, having both services will require two separate satellite dishes.… The same provider that supplies you with Internet service can't provide TV, and vice versa. For satellite Internet, you'll need to use HughesNet, WildBlue, Starband, or Skyway USA, and for satellite TV, you'll need to use DIRECTV or Dish Network. That's why you'll need two separate dishes. . (MORE)
Answer . The parabolic antenna is really not an antenna at all - but a collector/reflector, which catches and concentrates RF (radio frequency) into a tiny antenna mounted above the dish, pointed into the dish.. Since satellites transmit at very high frequencies (microwave), the actual antenna c…an be shorter than one inch. To strenghen the signal and make aiming the antenna at the satellite easier, the parabolic reflector picks up a wider area of RF. (MORE)
The best way to get good television reception is to use a quality antenna, quality coaxial cable (RG-6 is prefereable over RG-59) and good quality connectors. TV antennas come in sizes that have a particular 'range" of reception. In that, I mean you can also get one too large which is just as bad… as one that's too small. If you can, try to get one where the lower distance range is around the range you need and then to help it last longer, try to mount it in the rafters. The reason for this is that the antenna will be protected from the elements and it'll last quite a bit longer. I'd also suggest you NOT ground your TV antenna, for two reasons: 1.) If lightning strikes, the damage to your TV will still be probably about the same as it would be if you did ground it and 2.) Why provide a path for a lightning strike if you can avoid it. Remember that February 17th. 2009, ALL analog TV transmitters will be shut off and they'll all be transmitting a digital signal. You'll either need a converter box for a TV with an analog tuner if you plan to receive on-air signals, or you'll be having to use cable or satellite receivers with the appropriate analog outputs on them to match your TV.

Wind systems transport atmospheric materials such as water vaporfrom one place to another. Through its constant motion, temperaturechanges are felt in different parts of the world, which in turncauses variations in weather within climate zones.
Satellites above the atmosphere can get a clear, big picture of Earth's cloud formations. By analysing these cloud patterns, meteorologists can forecast how these clouds will change and move, and predict the weather, be it rain or shine, for many areas. For example, hurricanes can be easily spotted …from satellites but not easily spotted from ground due to its size, and thus satellites come in very helpful. Also, infra-red satellite forecasting can also determine the temperatures in different areas on Earth's surface, which aids meteorologists in finding out cloud heights, cloud types, water cycles and sea surface termperatures (an important factor in the formation of hurricanes).

I get a perfect picture on TV using an antenna. Can not get digital signal to come thru when using either a converter box or a new digital TV. I have following all the instructions carefully and can get no signal for digital. The antenna is new and hooked up correctly. Get perfect analog pictures. W…hy can't I get a digital picture? DTV signals are for the most part weaker than the old analog signals. Your new antenna needs to be a high gain VHF/UHF type with a built in or add on amplifier at the antenna. Don't forget to use new coax cable between the antenna amp and the TV set. Be sure the antenna is pointed directly at the transmitters, many have been moved. Sometime a rotor is a great help if the transmitters are in different direction's. If you using splitters, etc, they might need to be replaced with ones that will pass UHF (900 MHz) signals. (MORE)
both have their pros and cons cable TV is more reliable in storms and snow were satellite will go out if snow builds up on the dish in theory HD on cable TV should be better but isn't because of the amplifying system out on the hard line outside so its more for what u what at your home
Much of weather is caused by heating or cooling of air masses. Hot air rises and cool air sinks. Broadly speaking, these movements cause pressure changes, fronts, and wind.
idk it is just that the person before said something inappropriete so i wanted to change it.....sorry
Hello - from all my research it is clear that even digital signals can be degraded by weather conditions. Contrary to statements that claim 'you either get a digital signal or not', you can receive digital signals that have been weakened by weather conditions. I live in Ohio, and am fortunate to be …able to use a plain 'bowtie' indoor antenna (no amplifier either) with my TV, and generally get excellent reception. However, when the weather includes heavy rain and especially high winds, my digital reception can randomly blank out, or the picture freezes, or shows random frozen pixels, or loses audio. Considering the high cost and very poor customer service of my local cable provider, I am more than happy to put up with my free, if occasionally less than perfect, digital reception. If you online search "weather conditions and digital TV reception", you can read supporting information. Cheers. (MORE)
Do man made satellites cause intense weather patterns since the moon is a satellite of Earth and alters ocean currents which affect the weather?
No. The Moon causes tides because of its mass, but the mass of an artificial satellite is negligible. So it doesn't cause any kind of influence on the weather, other than allowing us to report on it.
strong rains and thunderstorm slightly affects signal blizzard covers the satellite dish with snow strong wind dislocates the position of the satellite dish strong heat, sometimes, can melt components of the satellite dish such as the surface of it
Indonesia's weather affects their living conditions in a horrible way. People earn very little money each and every day. They are payed a very small wage for tremendous amounts of work. Their weather conditions dont help either. With the latest tsunami and also earthquakes every couple of years due …to volcanoes etc, their living conditions are horrible. People are sometimes so poor that they live in houses that are flooded from the tsunamis or in houses that are flooded due to overflowing rivers. I think that anything more to happen to Indonesia, would bring them down almost entirely. (MORE)

Terrestrial television broadcasts are available in most locations and that means a roof mounted aerial will deliver television signals to an LCD television. In the US and UK (and other countries) all commercial broadcasts are now digital. That means that the television must have a digital tuner. A…lmost all televisions sold in the last four years or so will have a digital tuner but older televisions may need a set top box to receive the broadcasts. Alternatively, satellite receivers offer an alternative to cable but are generally a subscription service. Although they avoid the cable, they don't avoid the monthly charges. (MORE)
To receive digital TV signals from all stations, it is important that your antenna be able to receive both VHF channels (channels 2-13) and UHF channels (channels 14-51). Some antennas only provide good reception of VHF or UHF channels, but not both. For example, indoor "rabbit ears" usually need to… be augmented with an additional "wire loop" or "bowtie" antenna (see pictures below) in order to pick up signals on UHF channels. Consumers should be aware that even if they use a digital-to-analog converter box, they will still need to use an antenna to receive DTV signals. Many of the antennas currently being sold as "HDTV Antennas," perform best at receiving UHF signals; some of these models state that they provide reception of signals on channels 7-13 but actually perform less well receiving those channels. If you obtain one of these antennas, be sure it provides good reception of all the VHF channels as well as the UHF channels. The reception capabilities of TV antennas also vary considerably, so be sure to talk to retail consultants and look at information on the packaging and/or the Internet to make sure that any new antenna you may choose provides good reception of both VHF and UHF channels. In addition, if you use an indoor antenna and receive signals on VHF channels, you may need to use an antenna with amplification. To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps. (MORE)
Yes microwave signals from geostationary satellites are attenuated as the signals pass through rain and snow storms. The TV picture pixellates and freezes during heavy downpours. The signal strength at the dish can be monitored by selecting 'signal test' on the satellite installation menu via the re…mote.. Incidentally the mobile, or cell phone, transmitter network can be used as a real time weather station reporter. The signal strength needed to transmit and receive microwave call signals is dependent on the weather conditions in the area a t the time. (MORE)

The same things that affects SD satellite broadcasts will affect the HD broadcasts. Rain fade is the most common problem resulting in signal loss during moderate to heavy rainfall.
A satellite dish relies on signals from a satellite to operate. As the signal must pass through the atmosphere, weather conditions can sometimes adversely affect the signal strength.

Weather satellites allow weather forecasters to track thedevelopment of hurricanes, other storms, and flooding patterns.This information allows forecasters to warn residents of thepotential dangers.
Some can, telephones are bad for this, you should have your telephone at least 2 meters from your tv.
Very rare. Cable tv runs through a cable that usually travels next to the power lines, or underground depending where you are. The only reason that wind would affect your cable tv is if a power line fell, or a tree fell and broke the cable tv/internet line. However, because cable service providers… obtain most of their programming from satellite and microwave links, service can sometimes be affected by severe weather, especially heavy rain. (MORE)

Particularly cold temperatures can affect both cold cathode back lighting as well as the speed at which the crystals can change state. However, both of them will correct themselves once the television has reached a normal internal temperature. Electronics are generally much better able to handle co…ld temperatures than we are so the viewers will be affect by the cold sooner than a television will be damaged. (MORE)
Yes, in a heavy rain or snow, reception on Dish Network or DirectTVdrops out. The weather at the time blocks the signal temporarily.Also sunspots and solar flares affect satellite transmissions also.There are ways to minimize this, such as multiple satellite dishreceptions and etc.
Heavy rainstorms will reduce the strength of the signal that reaches your dish, while at the same time adding some noise to the signal. There's not much to do about that, unless a bigger dish is available, which would 'catch' more of the signal. Another thing that can degrade signal is trees. W…hile your dish may have a clear unobstructed view of the satellite on a calm day, with a little wind (not even a cloud or storm) some trees could be swaying their branches into the signal path. Either move the dish, or see if some of the branches can be trimmed. Some of the dish systems let you switch transponders (kind of like changing channels) which the alternate transponder may be getting through better to you than the one currently using. Check with your guide or manufacturer's website. (MORE)
Generally satellite reception is better than cable even when the two are both sent digitally. A satellite signal transfer is more direct and therefore has less chance of interference. The cable signal travels through many feet of wire and connection points. These provide a greater chance of interfer…ence. The only time the opposite is true is during bad weather when the satellite signal can degrade. (MORE)
They are both good providers and it is more a matter of preference. I enjoy the Direct TV for the quality of their customer service. Look at both companies packages and see which one is best for you.
No, they do not. Most cover makers have material that does not hinder reception. Covers protect your dish and outside electronics from harsh weather conditions. Which could cause freeze framing or total loss of satellite signal.
Assuming you are talking about over-the-air television and you live in the United States, then no, it's not possible. Wifi networks use a spectrum of radio frequency much higher than the bands designated by the US Government for UHF television (and most TV networks have signals in the VHF band, whic…h is even lower). Interference is a result of multiple signals competing on the same wavelength, or very near it, and that is simply not possible for over-the-air television, as it operates at a much lower frequency.

Any satellite communications system network operator using a Ku-Band system (12/14 GHz or higher frequencies) will face the effects of rain fade at some time. But to understand why this weakening occurs with Ku-Band transmissions, you must first understand the causes of satellite rain fade. Two of t…he most common causes are listed below. . Absorption - Part or all of the energy generated when a radio wave strikes a rain droplet. The droplet is converted to heat energy and absorbed by the droplet. . Scattering - A non-uniform transmission medium (the raindrops in the atmosphere) causes energy to be dispersed from its initial travel direction. Scattering can be caused by either refraction or diffraction: . Refraction - The refractive index of the water droplets encountered by the radio wave. . Diffraction - the travel direction of the radio wave also changes as it propagates around the obstacle in its path (a water droplet). These different reactions ultimately have the same effect - they cause any satellite system to lose some of its normal signal level. Don't expect to lose your satellite signal every time it rains, though. Rain outage will only occur during the heaviest rains (convective and stratiform are the most predominant types) with only a small portion of the transmission path experiencing attenuation. In fact, of a typical satellite transmission path measuring 22,300 miles, less than .02% will be affected by rain fade. Thanks. (MORE)
Yes. Severe weather, especially heavy rain or snow, can interfere with the transmission between the satellite and your receiving dish.
Make a template of the rim circumference. Measure the length of the receiver to the deepest part of the dish. Obtain a piece of clear ultraviolet resistant plastic and make a template large enough to include the receiver and circumference of the dish and add about one inch to the outer edge. Obtain …a bungee type chord and sew it into the one inch space. leave a 2 in space where the ends come together. Cover the dish and receiver and when there is a snug fit tie the two chord ends together with a square knot and finish sewing the opening. Once the cover is in place spray with pam and wipe off residue. This will shed water and keep the dish dry. renew the spray once a month. (MORE)

Clouds effect weather condition because they block the sun cause less heat and they also hold liquids and when they get to full it rains and many more reasons.
Direct TV offers roughly the same channels that are offered with every other major provider. They offer many movie channels, sports channels, and all your other favorites such as PBS and Fox.
Satellite TV delivers programming via wireless signal. It is an alternative way for consumers to watch television. There are drawbacks, such as inclement weather, that hinder the reception.
The difference is that a satellite television requires a satellite signal to pick up the data whereas a cable television can receive it through cables such as fibre optics.
Link TV is available through Dish Network and Direct TV. This station is also available through many cable providers throughout the United States, and some clips are available for streaming online.
Conditions that affect the weather are wind, high pressure, and lowpressure areas. Areas of concrete and blacktop heat up fast and canaffect the weather.
