    Default Winterizing my DirecTV Dish

    Does anyone here ever have problem with frost and ice on their dish during the winter time? I have a 5 LNB dish and always find it to be a pain when I have to clean it because A. the ice just doesn't want to come off and B. it's cold outside and the less time I have to spend out there, the better.

    What can I do to keep ice from sticking? Is there a spray or anti-stick oil I can use?

    I don't have a dish but I have heard others recommend using a silicone spray. Be careful not to inhale any of the mist.

    I've heard of people using household products like Pam before. I have cable so I don't have to deal it.
