Re: WISP dish points at ground...

It all makes sense. I called down to T6 just to see what kind of connection I am getting anyway. He told me -77 db. he says over the course of whatever history he had the lowest it ever was, was -76 and the highest -86. So, those are numbers I can live with.

As far as the storms go, it all started when there was a terrible set of storms down in Illinois earlier this year. Their network was down for a couple days and since then its been terrible during storms. It is probably just some equipment issues in their grid I cannot do much about.

Just for the heck of it though I might try grounding the dish since none of the outlets in this old house are grounded. The electrical here never responded well to storms and I have paid for it with several nuked TVs and about a dozen phones. You used to have to stay away from our telephone back in the day because it would ring when lightning was close... and if it was really close it would shock your face...

What, I can have feathers

Just as an FYI, -76 is a better signal strength than -86.


I know, thank you though.
