    Life sucks ...

    Yes, we are bad this year. Yes, we will get creamed by OSU. Yes, I have dishnetwork. Yes, I have ESPN full court. Yes, the game is on.

    But I can't watch it because we are having a winter snow storm here and the dish is out. Yes, I was outside throwing snowballs at the freaking dish trying to knock the snow off of it. Yes, I hit the dish a few times but it's hard to get at (good for asthetics but bad for throwing at it). Yes, it's only 6 inches of heavy wet snow and the dish should be working but its not. Life sucks.

    Re: Life sucks ...

    When you're able to clean the dish off, spray some pam on it. Do that once or twice each winter. That will help a ton.

    I do that and we never have snow issues on our dish. :)

    Synthetic ham helps a dish get better reception? Would Oscar Meyer Bologna help if that is all I have?

    Re: Life sucks ...

    pam = snow falls off due to change in friction,
    Bologna = the racoons knock it off as they eat it

    am I close?

    Okay I wiped the spam all over my dish but I still am not getting good reception? Should I call Hormel or what?

    Eeek...sorry guys...I was on the phone and posting at the same time.

    I meant to say...spray PAM on the dish. It honestly works.

    Re: Life sucks ...

    Thanks for the reply guys. Made me laugh even though I am out the game. There is another guy who posts here called LoboClone. Wonder if his dish is working ... maybe he had his spam filter installed properly.

    Anyone got a link for internet audio?
