Why DD Free Dish Affected By Rain / Bad Weather?

DD Free Dish Satellite signals impacted by bad weather generally in rainy seasons. As you know that DD Free Dish uses Satellite technology (Ku-Band) signals to broadcast TV signals from GSAT-15 satellite which is located at 93.5 degrees east.

This Satellite signals are sometimes lost during bad storms as the clouds and the associated lightning can disrupt the signal and prevent it from reaching the dish. Often when this happens the best thing to do is wait until the rain passes.

The wavelength of microwave down-link frequency used in any DTH broadcast is comparable to the diameter of raindrops and therefore the wave cannot just pass through it without being substantially attenuated. Hence the loss of DTH signal during rains occurs. anybody maybe disturbing but there are no easy ways out.

Why DD Free Dish does not run in rainy season?

C-band signals are less focused compared to Ku-Band Signals (higher satellite frequencies). This is due to the longer wavelength in C Band. Here less focused signals mean that these signals are less affected by rain.

Most of the Cable TV Operators, Broadcasters use only C-Band dish antenna to receive signals, then they transfer these signals to TV Viewers’ home by using coaxial cable and amplifiers.

So now you can understand why Cable TV less affected by rain than any DTH service or DD Free dish. So heavy rains may result in a temporary outage in the DTH signal.

DD Free Dish DTH Rain Problem Solution

High-Quality LNB (Low Noise Blocker)

You should use only branded LNB (Low Noise Blocker) to increase signal stability.

Dish Antenna Size

You can increase the size of the dish antenna if your area comes in heavy rainfall. You should use a 90cm DTH antenna.

Signals leakage

You should check all the Coaxial cable and connectors to stop signal leakage. You must use branded and high-quality Coaxial cable and connectors to stop signal losses.

Covering your Antenna with Spray

You can spray your DD Freedish antenna with a non-stick cooking spray oil. This spray prevents raindrops from clinging to the DTH antenna, which can cause it to receive DD Free dish signals erratically. You will need to spray the satellite antenna at least once every 3 months.
