I've lost 91 again today. It only happens in the morning on a bright sunny day.
My 82 dish is in shade and I still have signal on it. I tried to shade the 91 dish but the sun is coming right into the dish.
Will the sun effect my reception by shining right into the dish.
Bell tech help line insists the sun will not effect the signal.
Can anyone help?
Thanks
Chris

Never known the Sun cause an issue at all, except the odd Solar Flare but not the Sun on the Dish.

Is it possible there is moisture in a connector at the LNBF and it is causing the problem.?

Knowing what part of Canada you are in might also help a little.

Is it possible that the direct sun is heating up the LNB enough to expand the circuitry inside just enough expose a fault. Does the signal usually return around the same time each day?

You could try swapping LNB's between the 2 dishes and see if the problem goes away.

I only lose the signal on sunny days. It goes away about 9:00 am and returns between 11:00 and 1:00.
I'll try switching the LNBs and see what happens.

I'm in Prince George, BC

Back in the day when I had the Big 10 foot dish we had SUNSPOTS which did indeed effect satellite reception. As I remember it lasted for about a week.

Thanks for the help. I changed the LNB a week ago and no problems so far.
It must have been a bad one.
Cheers
Chris
