    Wally RV Problems- Software Update?

    I've been following an RV forum where multiple Wally users say they began having problems with a frequent "signal loss" message. They are all saying that this popped up in the last few days, possibly after a software update. Any ideas? Is Dish aware/working on this??

    Ham and Dish Ground

    I'm starting to think about getting my ham shack set up at the house. It has been many, many years since I've played with any of the HF stuff. I will have a second floor ham shack with some type of long-wire antenna, which will likely be in the eaves. I'm starting to consider grounding...

    Iphone 8 Battery Life

    I'm getting about 3 full days, like 72 hours, (really!) of battery life on my Iphone 8. That compares with about a day on my 6s. I did a backup and restore, so app demand should be similar on both. Are others seeing the same thing?

    MattG Da DIRT Man!

    I'm moving and want to move up to Hopper. I decided to try the DIRT Team, rather than call and play "CSR Roulette." MattG got me on the right track in a few quick e-mails. I strongly urge anyone needing a bit of help from Dish to try the DIRT folks. Many thanks Matt!

    Getting Back into Ham Radio

    I've been licensed since 1969. However, I've not done much for 20-30 years. I went to a garage sale about 3 weeks ago looking for Shopsmith stuff and found myself at the home of a silent key. To make a long story short, I now have a BAHR (Big A$$ Ham Radio). It's an old TenTec Omni D. I...

    Overall Impressions of CES 2011

    I spent the past two days at CES. Day 1 was hangin' with Scott and the GREAT staff. Day two was going wild through the aisles on my own. I'm a quasi-techie, more of an advanced user, not Sat expert like the staff, but here are some overall thoughts on CES: - 3DTV. It's cool, its...
