Anybody know this:
Can I take one of my receivers camping with me, I already have a dish antenna that came with the RV? If so how do I find the satellite. Do I just point it in the same direction as other campers have theirs and hope for the best, or do I need some kind of gauge? thanks

Hi... MUCH has been posted on this topic... suggest you do a search on "tailgate" and you'll find what you need. Short answer, yes it's pretty easy.:cool:

I just look at other dishes and aim same direction, then use signal meter on screen to tune it.

If no other dishes around, aim straight south then go east/west depending on what side of country you live on. Straigh south from where I live is a little less than 90 degrees, and the main D* sat is at 101 degrees.
