When getting my dish network installed earlier this year I informed the installer that I'm a full time RV'er and spend much of the year in the Western US. He told me I would need a two dish setup with one dish pointing at 119 and 110, and the other at 61.5. Now that I am west, (Bozeman, MT this week, and getting ready to head to Billings, Mt then Rapid City, SD) I find that the 61.5 is lower on the horizon than 129. If I am receiving 110 and 119 wouldn't I have to receive 129? I thought it was at a higher elevation.

Is there any other reason I can't use 129? I would much rather carry and set up one triple lnb dish then have to set up two separate dishes.

Thanks for any advice.

Won't hurt a thing, you will also get a few more HD channels off 129 than you would 61.5 too. Its just a matter of running a check switch if your going back and forth..no biggy.
