Very few brick and mortar stores with FTA equipment. Most gear is by mail order or purchased from a local installer.

Warning: MXmart site is pushing receivers that are/were primarily used for theft of service. Not the best choice for free to air. Most of their dishes are set up to receive Dish Network satellites. Hmmmmmmmmm, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what they are up to...... It would be safe to say that this store will have very few items that a FTA hobbyist will want. I would be very cautious of any equipment suggestions or advise that you might receive. It is obvious the market that they cater to. :eek:

The equipment may be shipped, but why not check out the sponsors of SatelliteGuys and check out what other members are using and where they are buying? There is certainly a better experience than MXmart. :eek:

Friends don't let friends buy junk.

I just looked to see what FTA receivers they offered.
Can't recommend any of 'em... not at full price.
Now, if you ran across one at a yard sale for $5-15, then we'd help you get it cleaned up and running.

Most of their dishes are for DishNet reception.

Most of their LNBs are for circular reception.

Think you can do as well or better elsewhere on switches.

Okay, I've had enough. :)

Where are you located - I stock a fair selection of FTA inventory in Canby, Oregon - 23 miles South of Portland.

I'm near the Seattle area. What kind of stuff do you have? I'm looking for a 36" dish, SG-2100 motor, Sonicview Elite receiver.

I stock two receivers - GeosatPro DSR-200 & DVR-1100C receivers. The SG-9120 motor (currently back-ordered about 1 week). In addition I stock three dishes, GEOSATpro90cm, GEOSATpro 1.2 Meter Offset, and the WSI-9036 90cm dish. I also carry 2X1, 4X4, 3X4, & 4X8 switches, Standard LNB's, cable and fittings. And many other installation supplies. PM me if you want to talk outside of the forum.
