For southeast U.S., it fades about 150 miles east of Florida and is very weak in Cuba.
Yeah here in Key West we rarely see better than about mid 80's% signal, a few lower. The locals do best as that is a spot beam to the So FL area.
Low signal level is somewhat made up for by the fact we are looking much more straight up than most of the US, so only very tall pouring thunder heads will knock it out and usually for not more than a couple of min, as they are usually moving right along and not real wide.
Both DISH and DTV about the same on that count.--
