I wish I knew the exact date my 10 foot mesh was installed!

I dont know if its 25 years this summer or next summer!

All I know is that I left Tyler Pipe in 1993, and as soon as I got my stock money, I paid off my house and bought my dish!

Hi Zack,

Maybe you bought the dish in 1993???
Which it makes it turn 25 years old, this summer????

I had a part time job for 6 months at the time when I bought
my BUD in 2002.
I was working at Central Washington University, CWQ as a
"Distance Education Supervisor", monitoring video phone
conference between students and the instructors from
away campus. That job lasted for 6 months, and I had
enough money to bu the BUD I.

I do remember the install by McCoy Satellite, for some reason the guys doing it kept complaining to their boss about certain things!

First thing was about the trencher breaking belts, and a two mile trip to replace them because of rocks! The boss finally told them to buy five at a time!

I then went to the back and got the impression that they thought that the hole they were digging was too deep!

It only took one more belt to finish trenching the last 25 feet so I went around back again and found them mixing concrete.

It was not long before one of them complained. This is 3 times more concrete than we have ever used!

The boss finally lost his cool and told them to look across the road and asked if they saw that house over there? When they said that they did, the boss told them that was his fathers house and that he was not going to be married to this dish for the rest of his life!

After that they all got upset at the time he took to run the dish back and forth when they had the TV hooked up, and they had to keep adjusting it.

After it was done, I asked one of the guys why it was so close to the ground. His reply was that it is because most of your pole is in the ground!

I must say, it turned out perfect, I can unbolt the actuator and lay it down and it is two inches off the ground!

Never had any problems, not even when I installed a returned C-KU feedhorn from Skyvision

KU came in with no problems, never had to tweak the dish for them!

Do not ask me what shape my sat system is in now, but I can tell you it is electronics, not dish.

Zack,

It could've been a lot worse, that boss would've FIRE those guys, especially
the one who complained.

I would be wondering where are they now????
Dead or alive, or what???

You missed the point! They ALL complained! They had never done an install the way my dish was installed!
