Introducing Dome Magic rain repellent satellite dish wipes. Just apply one of these single-use wipes to your satellite dish or dome and a protective layer is formed. This helps repel rain fade and signal loss that comes from heavy rains, dew, and show that melts on your satellite dish. A single application of Dome Magic can last from six months to a year, depending on exposure to the elements. This is the most effective and economical way to make sure rain fade isn’t a problem.

Here are the two ways that precipitation causes rain fade in satellite TV dishes and domes:

  1. Absorption: Where some or all of the energy generated when a radio wave strikes a rain droplet. The droplet is converted to heat energy and absorbed by the droplet.
  2. Scattering: Raindrops, which are a non-uniform transmission medium, cause energy to be dispersed from its initial travel direction. The signal is either refracted by or diffracted around the water droplet.

How to Apply Dome Magic

Even though application sounds simple, Solid Signal wants to make sure you properly use your Dome Magic wipes. Here’s Dome Magic’s eight-step approach to help protect your satellite dish/dome from rain fade:

  1. Apply when air temperature is between 60-110 degrees F (16-45 degrees C).
  2. Clean the dome with warm soapy water to remove all dirt, dust, and debris.
  3. Thoroughly rinse and dry dome.
  4. Wipe dome with alcohol and let dry to prepare the surface.
  5. Open Dome Magic packet and remove the towlette.
  6. Pour liquid from foil packet onto the wipe cloth.
  7. Starting at the top of your dish, wipe dome surface with the saturated wipe cloth using a circular motion for a uniform coat throughout.
  8. Wash hands with soap and water
