    The Locals ain’t worth it on Comcast considering they charge for the HD box, package and broadcast Tv fee

    The bill is $69.99. The rest is an $8 broadcast fee and taxes.

    In 2004 Comcast Internet here was $39 per month IF I paid another $15 for 20 locals. If I did not buy the locals they charged $79 for just Internet. They did not drop the local requirement for a discount until 2015. Now they just include 20 locals with the Internet service for $69. Go figure.

    I’m surprised Comcast is that expensive for that speed. I pay that, $80 for 1Gbps/1Gbps fiber. 100/100 is $50 per month here. It’s provided by our electric cooperative. Of course you don’t get any TV with that.

    They’re not that big in this area. I rarely see ads for them. Most of the ads around here in this TV market are for Charter Spectrum, so I am used to seeing the ads for their ‘introductory’ pricing. They’re probably the same way after the deals end. I doubt fiber would be as reasonable if it were supplied by anyone other than the co-op.

    If you look at the DIRECTV dish, it doesn't appear to be skewed a great deal either so the chances are pretty good that the pictures' location is somewhere relatively West where the dishes wouldn't need to be skewed much as compared with what you would need at 94-95W. Near the eastern border of Oregon and Washington, the skew/tilt would be zero.

    The non-penetrating mount may need some more ballast due to the new biplane configuration.

    This is what happens when franchising is the order of the day: A cable company wins the bid for the franchise and all other cable companies are shut out.

    I'm wondering if someone would be able to take a DirecTV international Dish & LNB and use it for Orby!

    The FSS setup for 95W is linear.

    Should work fine - it is a linear LNB and a good sized dish.

    that antenna looks a lot like my little cheap antenna off of eBay... with the exception of the loop... less than $30, claims to get 70 mile range...
