    Last night was real frustrating when it rained heavily and my signal kept going in and out on my oval 18 x 24 dish. Is their a bigger dish that will get in both Direct TV satellites in with a stronger signal? Or should I use my old round one for the A satellite and my oval one for the other to get a stronger signal?

    What's your signal strength on a clear day? You may need to fine tune your dish's aim. You can also buy two 18" or 24" dishes and peak each one.

    I've lost signal due to rain fade once or twice with my eliptical. Usually the storm was so bad I was looking for a place to hide and not worrying about watching TV.
