Gen4 and rain fade?

I tried installing a new HT1000 modem at a site with an SQF of 108 peaked. But OVT would not pass so I could never activate the terminal. The EsNo values were way under target, but again the SQF was 108, and tried another radio unit. I know the 9000 was very subject to rain fade, but does anyone know if the Gen 4 system is degraded much by heavy rain and/or rainclouds?

Same freq range, same transmitter output, same atmospheric vulnerability. That said, pretty sure the Gen4 system employs a larger rain fade margin. So when the connection drops, it's more likely to be the inroute that breaks lock first.

Greg is right, the 1000 has a greater resistance to rain fade than our 9000 did, and this is coming from Florida, where we get to test this a lot!

bad radio / modem not putting out correct voltage.

bad ground block / connector (never had this happen in my life)

warped dish / reflector?

Well its deffinately, by far worse imo.. But what do I know? I never had 9000, i was never positive if it was the storm or Hughes. When my signal drops somewhere below 80 something I start getting those so called web accelerator errors that corrosive is always pointing out to me, my modem just starts messing up real bad, unusable, can't do anything with it untill the connection returns back to normal.

Well Diablo, there is probably something else at play with your system I am thinking. During Hurricane Sandy we used the 1000 through most of the storm. While the storm passed by us offshore here in Fla, we still had 50+ wind and some very heavy rain bands. I was amazed, but we were online and doing fine with signal between 30-40. A few times it dropped down to 0 and of course we did loose the signal then, but it would always come back up when the heavier bands passed. Our normal sig during that time of the year (still hot and humid) was around 121. Right now with cool dry air at 50 degrees our sig is 131. As I understand it, the mod code and the bit depth will vary with the sig strength, adapting along the way to maintain a signal in bad weather on this modem.

Sure, then i guess i'm looking forward to buying an entire modem, while i'm at why don't i replace everything like the satellite and the cable(everything) but there's just 1 little problem, its gonna take 2 years before this will happen. The service is just so expensive.

The "service" should cost you nothing during the warranty period. Whereas it's likely a bug on Hughes end, many times you don't actually have to wait till it clears itself. Go into the Advanced menu, specifically to Web Acceleration/Control. Disable, then immediately Enable, try browsing again. If that doesn't improve things, go back and Disable temporarily. Browsing will slow some, but at least it will work. Next time you use the Internet, you can likely first go back to that page and Enable again

Get a squinter and try again. If it difficult to get it to squint with equal values get another reflector.
