Goodbye Direct TV

Written By kwdawg, Anacoco, LA on Thursday, July 09, 2009

I was fed up with my Direct TV bill going up every month and was not
willing to sign another 2 year contract to lower the price. I purchased this
system and now receive 12 HD stations to include the THIS movie network
and a weather channel. I receive stations from Alexandria, Lake Charles
and Lafayette, LA, and Beaumont TX, all greater than 40 miles from my
location. When conditions are right I receive stations in excess of 150 miles
away.

My antenna is mounted on the corner of my house just beolow the roofline
and I'm considering raising it another 10 feet to see if I get even more
stations. Once you identify your station azimuths and program the rotator it
is very simple to use.

Installation is pretty straight forward and not too difficult. My only regret is
that wire for the rotator remote is not provided and I had to order that
from another source. You will also need grounding wire and a grounding
rod as they are also not provided.
