Thats about all I could find but in watching it at Camping World, it was as good as what I have at home, which is DISh Network, also on my class A rig.
Hey Les,
The compatibility issue is why I can't use it, as I have Star Choice, the "black sheep" of
satellite receivers, I guess. SC uses linear wave technology when transmitting signal, and the
other 3 (DN, DTV, and BEV) use circular. So I need a dish and Low Noise Block which is FSS and
linear wave compatible. I guess the portable dish manufacturers are mostly folks who use DN and
DTV, so they're mostly desgined for those service providers. There are one or two systems that
work for my receiver, but they're too pricey for my needs right now.
So, I can't use it, and I don't want to spend $2-3K on a Motosat or Winegard automatic system at
this time.
We may be off on a road trip in the next few weeks, so once I get to somewhere where it isn't
snowing or freezing, I'll try setting up my "portable" system, and I'll see if/how it works.

Thanks for looking into it, though.

It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
