    5LNB: fascia mount vs. pole

    Last Thursday, I was supposed to have my Phase III upgraded to the 5LNB. My existing dish is mounted to the fascia of my home. It has been this way since 2004 and I have had 0 problems. It's nice, clean, out of the way, and unobtrusive. Pictures: (Pictures Removed, was causing error for...

    Signal Strength

    I'm getting on average about 85% on 110A, 65% on 110C and 85% on 119B. Is this acceptable? I have a completely unobstructed view of the sky. I don't ever lose signal except in a decent rain storm. I wonder, however, if my signal was stronger it might hold on a bit longer in rain. Is it...
