My reception on the LEO's has deteriorated over the last week. During this
period we have had some rain but mostly overcast with thunderstorms within
50-60 miles. I have checked all the connections, etc on the antenna. The
noise is sporadic hum and lots of QRN.

I have searched for " effects of wx on amateur sats" but turned up nothing.


Was hoping someone could point me to some info on wx and sats; I know it has
some effect on Direct TV etc but need to get to the source of my problem. It
is there with the PA on and off...
