Can you elaborate on the issues with grounding a satellite dish? The only thing I can think of is that you may be making it more conductive and therefore more likely to get hit. Is this what you are referring to?
I have the s15. It is pretty amazing but insanely priced ($1500 few years ago).

There have been a lot of debates over the years about sat dishes grounding. Yes one side argues the grounding attracts lighting. In the lightning capital, this is a big deal. Add to the fact that so often they are grounded wrong and the argument can be said that not grounding has advantages in some circumstances.
