Worried about new installation

My appointment is this coming Monday (10/08). I'm concerned that they might not be able to install the dish on my house.

I don't have any fascia boards on my house. This is a 40+ year old home. I do have a board that runs the entire width of the house that sticks out on each end. I'm thinking they can use that. Now my other problem is my roof is a concrete tile roof. I've read where they won't climb on it.

What type of installations can be done? I really don't want it done on a pole. I don't know if they can bolt it to the side of the house because the eaves are out about 3-4 feet.

Also, when I tried to have it installed about 1-1/2 years ago, they told me they would need a "J" bracket. But, that was with the older type dish. Not the new one. I was a bit pissed and cancelled the install.

They can be installed at the corner of a house where main jousts are.

It can also be installed right next to the elecrical panel above or below it as their are studs that are along both sides of the box on the outside depending which side of the house the panel is facing.

Studs are also found around windows and doors both above and next to.

If you are talking about the S-Tube for the corner, the installer (Ironwood) doesn't have them in stock yet. They are sending a supervisor out tomorrow to check my house to see if the install can be done.
