I had brought our second, "bedroom" receiver down to Florida from Ohio. I thought I would still be able to get the local Cleveland channels down here, but could not.
Another cheap way to mount a sat dish, is to get a piece of steel electrical conduit the same diameter as the dish mount. Just stick or pound the conduit into the ground and mount the dish. I use a signal meter at the dish for aiming. Bring 50 to 100 feet of coax, as you may need it to get around obstructions.
