Part 1

I want to "move" to the Fresno DMA for the up coming NFL season. Does that DMA's spot beam cover/reach San Jose?

Part 2
Assuming it does cover/reach, how does one go about choosing the best address to move to?


Thanks -

The satmaps don't include the Fresno beam, but the San Jose beam covers Fresno so it's reasonable to assume it works the other way around. Check the signal strengths for 103 t17 and t18. That's where the Fresno spot beams are. If you have numbers in the 80s then you should be okay. Even lower numbers into the 70s will probably be fine.

Seeing that I don't have Direct yet I can verify. :-( Can anyone who has direct in the Bay Area check for me please? Any suggestion on Part two of my question?

Do you know anyone in the area that doesn't have Directv? You could use their address. Perhaps an apartment complex? Find out the apartment numbers and make one up to go with it. If the address is 100 Main St apts 1-10, use apt 11.
