I recently upgraded from my HN7000S system to the HT1100, after HN moved me to a transponder that gave terrible service.
My question is... Is the Gen4 system more sensitive to rain? About five minutes before it starts raining, my signal drops down to about 6...and it's normally out for 10-20 minutes. With my older system, it took either serious pre-rain conditions in the atmosphere or a very heavy rain to knock out my service...but the new system drops every time it rains, no matter how light the rain may be. My signal in good weather is generally 97-99.
Also just wanted to share...after 7 1/2 years on an ungrounded dish with no grounding block on my wires, I finally have a system that is grounded
