Don't know if anyone noticed in todays paper but here in the Manchester (NH) Union Leader Verizon has a full page ad offering Directv service when bundled with their Verizon Freedom package.

I called and inquired that the only upfront charge was a $15 shipping and handling charge. However I found out that I could'nt get the offer because I was in Pegasus territory.

Anyone else cked this out?

Thanks from what I hear most do. :D

What bands are you active on?
For now I'm on 2m but hopefully soon I'll be back on 75m on 3936.

Yeah I have an inside source that claims we won't see DSL here until 2008 if ever.

Got a 2/220 and 440 triband in the car. Live in Rindge and wrk in Woburn. Have N1IMO's 147.195 machine here in Rindge. Also have a 224.6 in Rindge and 224.98 machine running in Woburn.

Verizon had DSl in the next town of Jaffrey. So there is hope here. Until then I have to deal with Pine Tree cable smucks.

Guys I'm a operator myslef but please stay on topic....Thank you

Sorry bout that.....

Anyway when Verizon said they could'nt provide me with Directv service. I called the local Pegasus dealer AVC in Laconia... To sign up with their Digital 1 plan it was going to cost me $150 before $50 rebate and if I wanted their phase 3 dish it was an extra $150 bucks!!! and I still don't own the equipment.

I'm a E* sub and all the wiring is done. Such a ripoff for changing out a dish and adding a multiswitch. :shocked

Oh well I guess I'll stay with Dish Network. :confused:

Seen triSat dishes on the market for $40. Also saw a DTV receiver at circuit city for $299. Its HDTV ready.
Call Pegasus and get their 2 or 3 room free installation.

Once its in service just replace the dish and activate the new Rx.

Thats what I did and no complaints.
