Quick update....Supreme Court refused to hear the Dishnet work case yesterday.....Colorado senator reintroduced the bill so that residents of LaPlata, Acheleta and Montezum counties could get Denver TV..With all do respect to our neighbors to the south, Albuquerque TV news sucks!

When I was at the factory at one point, I saw that the factory installed one of those domed rooftop units to one of the trailers in production.

I agree some that the fewer holes you put in the roof the better, but if you are as much of a TV fiend as I am and you are in the trailer a lot and at different locations, maybe a mounted one would be best. If the last three statements aren't guess would be that a tripod would be a better idea.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Directv has a 'disaster recovery kit' that comes with a dish, tripod and cable for $49.95. I use that and it is pretty easy to setup.

I put on a Winegard Trav'ler Sat antenna a couple of weeks ago, and it's great!

The large dish (bigger than the dome units) with three LNB's pic up the three Dish Sat's, and you have the option to attach up to 3 coax cables. I ran 2 cables, in case we want a 2nd TV later.

It's neat to push one button and let the Trav'ler's electronics move the dish around on the roof to seek the best even performs a 'slew' to peek the signal!

Yeah, sure there's the 'tree thing' to deal with once in a while...makes life interesting. We have our Vuqube we used in our Truck Camper that has a remote control used to find the Sat signals, on a 50 ft coax to get around the 'tree thing'...we've used the tripod/antenna system in the past, which works if you want to fool with that sort of thing.

The Trav'ler mounts with only a few screws around the base of the unit, and of course a hole for the cables. They give you a plastic cover for the cables where they go through the fill it up with sealant, and no worries about leaks!

Anyway, we're spoiled with the 'one button' routine now, and I wouldn't give it up...AND we can now get HD signals from Dish Net when we upgrade our receiver! HD sports while out in the 'sticks' will be kinda neat, indeed!

Here's a long shot...
