    I think I'm missing something. Satellite and Radar are two completely differant things that have no interaction at all with each other (unless it's a satellite mounted radar, but those have nothing at all to do with looking for tornado's).
    Since I've had DishNetwork I'm sure he's saying the TV pic is down due to the heavy rain. :D

    In the event of such future incidents, you may find these a bit helpful.

    http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/wwa/

    http://www.nws.noaa.gov/radar_tab.php

    The first link will show you all the watches and warnings that the NWS has issued. The second link will give you a national radar that you can zoom down to each individual WSR-88D around the country.

    The only way I can get TV here is with a satellite dish. When we have extreme weather the signal from the satellite to my dish is obscured by the clouds so I can't pick up my TV signal. I was watching the radar from the Atlanta TV station and when I lost my TV (satellite) reception I couldn't see the radar anymore.
    It came back on pretty soon after that when the clouds moved on.

    Since We've got DISH (which I like a lot) ours rarely goes down. When it does, it is usually a severe thunderstorm to our southwest that does it.

    Or snow in the dish which is easily dealt with. :D

    Excellent. Thanks. I tried to get into WSB Atlanta to watch their radar but I guess the site was too busy.
    Then I got my signal back so I quit looking.

    Cable comes to within about a mile of my house. They said they would run it up the Mountain for about $2,000.00 I said thanks anyway and got Direct TV. Then I switched to DISH which is generally very reliable.

    Back when I had Dish in FL the thing would go out in Med. to Severe T-Storms. They have improved the reception from what I hear. We picked up a inch and a quarters worth of rain from this last storm.

    The reception is much improved in the last few years. I think ours receives from two satellites instead of just one.
