This is somewhat related to my previous thread (seeing how one of the potential issues prior to my service call I was worried about was dealing with line of sight.) According to Dishpointer.com and using the google earth app at the bottom of the page, I should in fact have clear line of sight. (at least from somewhere at my house, perhaps not necessarily where it's at now) Is this normally pretty accurate? Thanks in advance. I eagerly await my tech coming on Saturday and hope to have my issues resolved at that point. I truly do appreciate all the help and advice you all have provided.
