Question Rain fade: would a larger dish help?

I live in Florida. Friends of mine who have dishes often complain of signal issues, especially on HD channels, during rainstorms. It rains here A LOT. Would a larger diameter dish, presumably providing a stronger signal, help with this problem?

Knowledgeable help is appreciated.

Yes it would. Call your local independent DN contractor and find out what he recommends.
