I want to install a dish system in fairbanks, ak and have been told no for various reasons. I have good line of site at 119 o. I plan on doing my own installation and want to start off with the basic install. Can anyone recommend a system to me (receiver, dish & switch). I have two HD tv's and receive locals channels via an antenna I was thinking about a Dish 500 with ViP 622 receiver. I welcome any thoughts.

I not sure what switch you'll need, I have a local dealer in Anchorage that set me up. Hopefully you can see 110/119/129, if you can two dishes will allow you to receive almost all of Dish's lineup. A small dish for 110 and there is a special dish for 119/129. The other option in dish sizes is to get one large dish(six foot) for 129. That will enable you to get all of the premium channels(HBO,SHO,Etc) in HD if you subscribe. You'll also be able to get the regional sports networks in HD with the larger dish.

A new satellite just went up for 119 and it has more spot beams for Alaska that I hope they'll use for more HD. That might make the larger dish redundant.

I have a 622, 722, and a 922. The 922 may be too much for you and doesn't come out until next month, but I would get a 722K instead of the 622.

local dealer in fairbanks could not install dish on roof (metal) or on yard pole 15 feet. If it's not an easy installation< you have two choices, do it yourself or pay a private satellite company (not constrained by guidelines) $900.00 to hook one up. I installed all three of my directv systems on my home in the lower 48. I'm just new the dish network nomenclature. I have line of site and azimuth for dish but not directv.
