it shouldn't happen during a light rain or a day without wind...but if it's a heavy rain and alot of wind...i'd expect the signal to degrade pretty quick

I bet a few people would have went along with it
“ the first time it rained I stood out there with an umbrella over the dish and my wife told me the picture was better, so I have since staked the umbrella down in the yard and its been better ever since”
Any way dsenette pretty much covered it; it’s really pretty easy for the signal to get messed up. I have found people with the dish wall mounted on the side of the house or even on the roof usually get the best reception.

You must have your dish installed upside down and its collecting water, turn it over

Its all in your installer, if you get a good one, you wont have problems, if you get a bad one...
Wait until a clear, calm day, and check your signal strength. If its not 100%, call your installer and tell them to get back out there and do it right.
