Today (saturday 18) is got my new 5 LNB dish installed. The installer mounted it on a 2" pole. :D The install went pretty well. The installers BIRDOG broke so he had to use a channel master black box thing. It worked okay. He aimed it and got high signals on the 101,110,and 119 buy only around 50 on the 103 and only on 4 tsps. is there only supposed to be 4 tsps. with signal? Anyway the guy said he was going to come out some afternoon this week, put the pole in concrete and fine tune it again with his BIRDOG. Overall I was satified with the install!

He is comming out later this week with concrete and fill in arround the pole. It was an 8 foot pole so is would say about 4 1/2 feet of it are in the ground. It is very sturdey even without concrete. It is a mess of wires since we have had so many different telco. companies and none of them take their old wires so they just stay there.
