Re: Grounding your Dish!

Yes, use a copper clamp on the dish pole. Run a #6 or #8 wire to the ground rod. The whole dish is a conductor, so the point is to shunt unwanted electric currents to ground (as close to the dish as possible) and prevent any such currents from reaching your indoor electronics. Grounding may even imp...

Re: Dish Size Poll

For most serious home satellite TV enthusiasts in the continental USA, the 10 footer is the recommended dish size. It will lock all USA/Canada transponders including the 16APSK ones. It will also lock all but the weakest Latin American transponders. The 12 footer is good to have in say northern Cana...

Re: Outstanding

Re: Suggestions for Site Upgrades

The charts link is great for seeing what is on each transponder but what I'm hoping for is the ability to filter the TV Guide. The Zap2it web site doesn't allow you to filter by band. It would be nice to drill down a little more for ku band only FTA systems. I know you can't do anything with their ...
