Default Airborne 5lnb!

Well for the past 2 days here in Boston we have had up 70mph winds. During the peak i hear this loud bang come from roof and picture went, well at this point it was flopping back and forth and pieces of the arm are in my driveway. Then about 20mins later huge crash the dish ripped iteself out and was hanging from roof by the wires No damage to roof tiles it bent the screw then pulled out cleanly...local cont. came out within an hour with new dish and some type of new bracket to stabilize it from moving! I was surprised because direct tv gave me an appointment the next day..but i couldn't wait and called the local myself!

I was also hit by storms in Boston by my 5LNB dish was installed on the SW side of the house so no damage in the wind or loss of signal.

You are very lucky.....I had to install near my peak on roof because of blasted triple deckers on both side of me! If something does occur i use AAA satelite in Woburn excellent service!
