    If you are north of the Mason Dixon line so to speak you aren't going to get much of a signal. This bird is to be supplying LIL for some southern markets and Dish Mexico. There are satbeam maps in the thread I posted earlier. Page 2 post #20 & page 3 post 23.

    Starband Channel Master 74E Pick or Not

    I have one in the garage and doubt it will be coming out anytime soon. In your area to me you kind of answered your on question. The footprints show that you need a larger dish. Yes the feed horn is elliptical but I don't think it really gets you much more gain out of the dish. The shape was...

    Got a New Dish, recommendations for LNB?

    History Gone?

    You have just talked to or looked at the website only. If you buy and install your own equipment the install is unnecessary. You may be dead in the water if you don't let someone do credit check. Both dish & directv do credit checks if you lease from them. Your best bet would be to go to the...

    Trouble with 8Ft dish, notfinding any bird.

    No it's not a polar mount that needs an actuator. It is an azimuth elevation mount you can only do 1 sat at a time and not track the arc. To track the arc you need to get a polar mount.

    Trouble with 8Ft dish, notfinding any bird.

    This dish has an Az/El mount. You can only pick up 1 sat with it. You can't track the arc with it. Where are you? The sats you have on the screen shots are all European & Middle East birds. You want help you need to give more info. We don't care if you are not in the USA.

    History Gone?

    You could do your own install of the pipe. Buy the 211k you could then have them do the dish install and activate the ext HDD and sub to welcome pak if SD is satisfactory. It isn't to me so I sub to a larger pak. Too me it's pretty much if it isn't HD I just don't care anymore.
