    FCC to sell c band spectrum

    Yea. Exactly how much radiation can a cell phone create running 5 volts at 1 amp.....with most of that juice going towards the display? With regards to needing more spectrum, I too work in the field and all the major carriers, as well as dish network have plans for 5g on the spectrum that they...

    FCC to sell c band spectrum

    With respect to 5g having a distance propogation problem....this is where AirGig comes in. There are many ways to do this that dont require c band spectrum, they are just buying it because they can. Same reason they are wanting to buy T band. They dont care that 911/law enforcement needs it...

    4k question

    +1 YOU DON'T NEED ANY INTERNET FOR 4K. NONE. NONE AT ALL. If you sign up for 4k, and don't get a hr54 genie, MAKE THE DIPSHIT LEAVE.

    4k question

    That's the dumbest thing I've heard about 4k. You do Not need any Internet for all. I've worked for mastec in the past and I still know people who do, for about 3 months now, they don't even get hr44s anymore. The company I work for hasn't gotten any hr44s since late June, just...

    Mini or HR24

    Or, you can get a h24/h25 for $99. DONT go mini, either the hr24 or h25 wil give you a backup if your genie goes down. The hr24 gives you some extra recording space, and you can still view your recordings from the same list in any room. It also wont max out your tuner limit.

    SL3 LNB 99 Signal Not Acquired

    Also, make sure your dish and your lines are grounded. Even when you dont have a lightning strike nearby, bad weather and high winds cause a LOT of static electricity in the air and anything metal just soaks it up. Even a simple 18-20 guage wire from the dish to a ground can give that static a...

    SL3 LNB 99 Signal Not Acquired

    Yes, they are on an arc, and your dish is pointed correctly, does NOT need to be moved. However, an lnb can go bad on just one of the three birds. Sometimes its errant static electricity, or a nearby lightning strike. And sometimes you just need a software download. Reboot your main genie, or...

    Channels I (Don't) Get

    And they greyed out channels arent always accurate either. In my experience, 99 percent of installs are people getting rid of time warner, or uverse, or movers. People who leave dish network almost ALWAYS complain about how they jack with the bill, not the service itself.Ive done over 1000 dtv...

    Converting direct tv to hdtv antenna

    You also need to get a 75:300 ohm balun and mount it in between the antenna and the coax, although if your antenna has a connector that the coax can directly screw onto, then the balun is probably built in.

    AT&T phasing out STB and Satellites by 2020?

    Well, everyone who signs up signed on for 2 years. And if there comes a time when all the sat techs get laid off or have their contracts cancelled nationwide, then there will still be over 700 days left to worry about it ;)
