    Anyone seen Wallyhts lately? I just tried to PM him and got a message right back that says he's away, and, search shows it's been a while since he posted on here?

    Anyone?

    Nope, he hasn't been on for a while, maybe 6 weeks or so. Maybe extended vacation? Hopefully he's ok.

    Talked with him on phone last week. He is fine, he just doesn't have much time for sat stuff right now. Big into fiber installs.

    :( Was trying to contact him about another Micro HD receiver. I bought a good used one from him back a year or more ago that is still doing fine but was wanting to find another one to replace that one that just recently took a dump. You just can't have too much "stuff", if you know what I mean!

    RE: Fiber Installs................... We got a letter a couple of weeks ago from our electric service provider notifying us that they will be running fiber to our house some time this winter. :clapping After using these cell tower metered connection mobile hot spots for the past few years it's going to be nice to have an unlimited 100 MBS fiber connection here out in the country! Only problem I see is I'll soon be 74 years old and with failing health I'm not sure how long I'll have to enjoy it. :deadhorse2

    Great to see he is out making some coin!
    Lots of fiber going in around here too, but they don't want rural customers. Called the installer and they quoted me $200,000 for the install. Guess it will be a while.
