OK I've lost some HD channels. The one that hurts the most is ESPN. I assume its from trees its Sat b. Since I get other 2 sats about how far do I need to raise dish to recover reception?

I was actually waiting for a response like cut the tree down. But your sarcasm will do! But seriously if I have to climb up my ladder to my 2 story roof to fix problem I only want to do it once.

Roger that. I have a 40' mast for OTA, and I put my dish on that. It got over my trees fine. Not many have that option, though. There are many dish mounting systems like tripods, etc. that can get you a few more ft.

I was in the same situation. I couldn't get sat b but the others were fine. I raised my dish about 4 feet and now it works great.
