    The only way that the wind could effect the radio signal is if the breezy conditions were creating a mist or spray of water from the surface of the ocean. Large amounts of water vapor can effect the signal because the signal is absorbed more by the water. All molecules absorb an amount of the energy from radio signals but because in air there's a large degree of separation of the molecules compared to the denser structures of liquids and solids it's usually negligible.

    Only if it blows you into a brick wall, the images may be broken...

    Only when it's a solar wind.
