can any one tell me what the elevation would be for 129 in ri? i want to get the hd pak but cant put two dishes on my condo so i figured maybe i could use a d1000. i have a perfectly clear los nothing even close.
The 129 satellite covers the NE, it is just too low an elevation to be practical. Low elevation leads to more rain fade since the signal has to go through a lot more atmosphere. Good visiblity to the SW and a larger dish can overcome this limitation. But, with the HD LiL on 61.5, and its superior elevation for the NE makes it the one to go with if you can see it.
