    That is more dependent on what programming you will be getting, as opposed to your geographical location.

    I got a 1000.2 for that, but you're further east, so you might get a 1000.4 (if you're on the eastern arc)?

    Specifically, http://www.dishuser.org/dishes.php

    cmtar, I would expect a Dish 500 for 110/119 and another with just 1 LNB for 61.5, though you may also be able to use a Dish 1000/1000.2. Your area should eventually get the Dish 1000.4 but that requires having only MPEG4 receivers with the new smartcards.

    It would be 2 Dish 500s. Since Dish doesn't yet carry Columbus GA locals at all, you may be able to use a Dish 1000. Two things that may foil that plan are line of sight to 129° (check at http://www.dishpointer.com) and that your locals may be added to a slot other than 110, 119 or 129.
