The satellite is in space, the satellite receiver is on Earth. The rain is in the atmosphere between the satellite and the receiver. The more rain, the more of the signal from the satellite will be used up by the atmosphere on its way down instead of reaching the receiver.

Yes. Severe weather, especially heavy rain or snow, can interfere with the transmission between the satellite and your receiving dish.

Inclement weather in the form of heavy rain, snow, or thick cloud cover can affect your satellite signal - it is known as rain fade. The satellite signal is fragmented as it attempts to pass through the heavy rain drops causing signal loss or pixelation (breaking up). This occurs with all satellite signal.

No fog does not affect Satellite TV.

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. Snow, rain, dust are all capable of disrupting the reception of many small satellite dishes. The bigger the dish, the less risk of signal drop out.

Yes, in a heavy rain or snow, reception on Dish Network or DirectTV drops 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 dish receptions and etc.

Satellite radio signals are not affected by rain and weather.

no rain does not affect the smell

such as rain and sleet and snow,

No it does not reach signal to the huge satellite

the lion affect the rain forest

it affect the path and orbital velocity of satellite due to gravitation pull

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.

how does acid rain affect a statue carved from marble

yes because a cable box will work if its starts to rain or bad weather comes unless all the electricity is out. a satellite is a pain to hook up and if it starts to rain the satellite wont work unless you readjust it again.

İf gravity is high, satellite will be very small due to lifting forces for satellite,otherw mise satellite wll vey big.

The acid rain is a rain containing traces of acid. It does affect very less ozone.

Yes it does affect climate by rain shadows :D

Cable generally is more reliable than satellite dishes due to it's physical nature. It's connected directly from the supplier to your television instead of intercepting signals using a dish. While severe weather can affect your cable line, a satellite dish can be knocked out by mere rain.

You can listen to satellite radio in the rain, but may get occasional dropouts from the cloud cover.

It does not affect chimpanzees at all

rain affects anything that is electrical

Wind can affect rain by moving the rain clouds so the rain moves to other areas. The wind also blows rain so it falls at an angle instead of straight down.

A satellite map shows if its gonna rain or something like that

Yes, mountains can affect climate by creating rain shadows.
