-For alot of us G10 is the winner because it has the most English channels on it
-But if you are from another country, IA5 would probably be it because it may have channels from your home land
-If you want news feeds, IA6 would be your winner
or if you have a specific channel (say PBS) then AMC3
ok..here is what i am looking for...i have a spare room in the house that now and then the inlaws come over..about once a month...i realy dont feel like droping money on another direct receiver and 5 bucks a month for when they come over for a weekend. So...i noticed that Galaxy 10 has some locals on there from other cities and i am assuming that you will watch national programs from those feeds, correct? I can kill two brids with one stone...start a fun hobby and lets inlaws watch tv...
now...if i give you my zip code, can someone tell me that I can get Galaxy 10>>>
I would do that...it gives you the option to put it in a bedroom and get all the nets but CBS & NBC (you'll get WB, UPN, FOX, ABC, Univision) and you can always get a motor later and see all thats out there
ok...next quesiton...sorry to be a pain and make you work for this one..but...will it point around the same direction as my direct tv dish..southern sky?? I have AT-9 for direct mounted a beam on my deck...i was doing to do the same with this...here is pick were DTV dish is mounted..i was going to do it a few beams in on the deck..
here is a link to my AT-9 install...if you look at the 2nd picture..i was going to try to mount the dish on the middle beam...possible???
In the 1st picture, the LNB to the far left (farthest away) is 119. But on a multiLNB dish, they go backwards on the arc due to the reflect...so mount in the general direction of that one but it would be a little farther west
I'm farther north than you (Minneapolis, MN 45N 93.5W) and I use a 36" for G10 (its a fixed dish). One of the transponders on there (the one that has most of the UNivisions and stuff...11720 frequency) is hard to get due to adjacent satellite interference. a 30" will work but a cloud cover nukes the signal. The one that has most of the nets is fine with either. If you get the setup at Sadoun, I'd spring the extra $15 for the larger dish
