From deep south TX I believe you can either get the McAllen spotbeam or a national network (Denver, Atlanta, etc). The bad news for "movers" is that the few remaining national networks appear to be moving to spotbeams. This will limit "movers" to those areas that have overlapping spotbeams - not so much of that in deep south TX.

I'm not sure how one defines fringe, but according to the map you provided, Cameron county (the southern most in the state) and the two adjoining counties are all outside the footprint ellipse.

If they qualify as fringe, then great! I would venture that Corpus Christi would also be do-able.

Those circles are the dB levels for standard size dish reception, that is why I suggested an oversized (30 inch) parabolic (single lnb) dish for areas just outside the circle.
