If snow or ice is sticking to the dish, spray it with pam. Seriously. Snow typically doesn't cause me issues unless it's the heavy wet stuff that sticks to the dish, as you're seeing.

Unless, like me, you have to get up on the roof at least once a winter to dig out the freaking dish BECAUSE IT'S BURIED IN SNOW!

I used to have ours on the roof but between the wind and snow and potential for leaks. Ended up with the dish on a pole in the yard. I was lucky to get a line of sight over the house though.

No. Side of the house is too low. Line of tall trees in the back yards on the other side of the street. I get 92% signal or better all thee time, unless the snow buries the dish.
