A double stacked lo-pro, with EL/AZ broke off for the middle tie-together, on an under eave mount with studs hit on one side only, no corner braces, and pointed right at trees during a winter install, service out at beginning of spring.

the other one is a LO,LO pro


You mean like these?

you realize you are the type of installer being made fun of right?

that low-low pro is classy. i've got a picture of a rail mount attached to a 2.5" pole, and a low pro on a flat roof mount kicking around here somewhere. they're both AT&T uverse installers.

The amount of garbage I seen in 7 years makes these installs look like perfect Installs.
