I heard a comment about the wife factor coming into play when choosing to add or upgrade a C Band dish, so with out getting into politics I have decided to take a public stance on this issue. :angel:

12 Foot C Band dish vs the Wife

hmm, lets see the C Band dish is reliable, does not talk back, provides hours of entertainment :eek: .

What more could a guy want?

Guess I better start packing her bags....

Well let's see hmm... I have a wife, talks back occasionally, would provide hours of entertainment if I could. :rolleyes:

Really I can't complain she knows the more dishes the more channels we get. Valentines day is coming, don't forget your sweetie if you have one.

Dishes can't cook (unless modified :) ), I can't cook, but my wife can! LOL

But in all seriousness, if you are comparing a Wife to a Dish, you need to get your priorities straight.

Or get to the doctor and see if your biology is alright. (Just kidding) :D

I know exactly how you feel. I'm in the same situation. almost.

I have the twelve foot dish and am trying to convince my wife that I need to put up a smaller dish. Right not its no go.

She has indicated my Daughter that there is something she would like to get. When she approaches me about it---Well thats Lets Make A Deal Time.:D

I can't cook so if the wife left I'll have to start dining at restaurants again. The problem with restaurants is that they serve too much food for an individual meal - it's part of the reason why Americans are so fat. My wife says that the food she gets at a restaurant will feed her and 2 relatives.

Anyway, I'm sure I'll be able to keep my wife and my dish - could use 2 antennas though. :)

i didnt mention that i have 2 beautiful kids from a previous relationship. she loves them too. when and if me and this woman have children i think itd be my choice to spend less time with dishes and more time with them. babies are better than dishes and twice as much work. haha. i wish every man could find a woman like her.

Well, I am the wife, and I want the 12' dish. I think my husband's convinced I'm crazy anyway :D

my girlfriend said why stop at a 12 footer. i had to explain that i was scavenging the dishes for free and wasnt going to spend 5k on a big rig (14.5 foot). so then she started hunting. she ordered me an orthomode feed for v-day. haha. im so lucky.

That's hilarious! Just wish my wife felt the same.

My biggest problem with a 12' is I haven't laid eyes on one around here and the 7.5 gets everything I've ever tried to get, even 9/10 S2's. Even bigger problem is the wife knows that. Me and my big mouth. ;)

I could have worse hobbies

With 5 dishes currently installed, and planning on number 6 she is pretty good about it all. I used to be pretty hardcore into Ham Radio, and had two big towers, now I have none, just a few dishes. They are not as obtrusive as towers! Anyway, I placed an ad on Craigslist looking for 4-6 foot dishes and a dealer called me back. He takes out True Focus 6' dishes now and then, and 4' Andrews from the earlier Dish Net systems around here. Both really fine products, I want to get on 129 for HD, and need a second dish for my Shaw Direct HD on 111.

It is a disease.
