Just read in the trades that Ruport Murdoch(Directv) is reportedly going to try and buy Dish(again) and combine the two.

Of course there are lots of FCC hurdles.

Maybe you will end up with the best of both worlds and a price reduction, NOT. Undecided

Have Fun.

Help is on the way! I'll bring a tripod and DirectTV dish, cheapo signal meter and beer. Cheesy
Jack, you got lots of experience with these things. I'm a newbie with satellite dishes...however, I've set up three of them now and have had no problems finding the correct satellite. If I were to have a problem, it would be in front of a group as I tried to explain how the things set up....and then have to explain why it ain't working! Bummer!
I'll be happy to assist you in any way.
Some of the later satellite dishes add another level of adjustment...."twist" or "tilt" to the setup proceedure. Glad I'm not trying to figure that out!
Got into a discussion with the DirectTV installer...I wanted the dish in mounted on the bottom of the front deck behind a bush. He sez it wouldn't work in that location. So the guy sets it in concrete out near the horse fence 70' from the house and ran wires across the yard. I told him to leave the wire on top of the ground just in case this thing didn't work out. Well, it worked fine and I decided to try to move the antenna to where I wanted it to start with. I had the roof mount arm from the dish that I use for a portable in the bus...so I clamped the mount to the side of the deck and viola! Got sat TV with the dish pretty much hidden. Setting that dish up, installing a dish on my barn for a permenant bus and barn service, and playing with the portable bus dish, is the sum total of my experience. The more complicated option is the Wingard on top of the bus. That looks like a PITA to setup due to the fact that I don't have the digital elevation gizmo. It wasn't even available with I bought the rooftop antenna. Used the bus for two years without sat TV and really don't need it now. Always had decent batwing reception. But...the concept is soooo cool! I'll enjoy playing with it.

Looking forward to Timmonsville! JR

JR,
As you said, I can usually find the satelitte in very short order, UNLESS I am doing it in front of a group of people! LOL. I was told by one installer that the reason you can't get a signal through heavy foliage is the the moisture in the leaves blocks the signal (simlar to the moisture in a heavy rain). Don't know if that is true, just what he said. i was also told by several coach owners that have the older KingDomes on ther coaches that a heavy condensation will block the signal until the sun dries it up. I know one person who's wife made him climb up on the roof and wipe the dome in the morning so she could watch her programs.
 
Dallas,
   Is there an "open" sky to the southwest in most of the campground?
