Does humid weather with condensation at night affect dish network satellite dish? I'm trying to figure out the problem with why I'm losing signal. It is not from rain, but maybe humidity? How would I possibly know if that is the problem? I need tips please. Tired of losing the signal here and there on most, but random nights.

Cable from dish to modem(replace with ones from hardware store), bad transponder (sometimes helped by waiting until a really hot dry day and bagging it with a plastic bag), interference from trees or vegetation. OR, complain and make them fix it.

The lnbf's can go bad over time and start signal drifting. That requires a new lnbf. At certain times of the year, the sun aligns with the satellite and your location causing solar outages and certain times of the day. If you haven't noticed the signal loss at about the same time of the day at this time of year in the past, that probably isn't the problem.

Have you checked the signal strength to begin with?

Maybe an owl is sitting on it at night.
