Hi, my service at home is in the 70445 zip, I tailgate at LSU in 70808. I use an SD receiver and an 18 x 20 dish on a tripod when tailgating and have had no problem hitting the 101 satellite and getting my national channels both in the back yard in 70445 or when tailgating in 70808, but I can't get the locals. I understand that the locals are spot beamed off the 119 satellite. I haven't been able to get on the 119, neither in my back yard or tailgating. Questions: Do I need to get on the 119 to get my locals? Is my equipment capable of getting on the 119? When tailgating, would I be out of the New Orleans market and would Direct TV block locals when out of my service area. Thanks for any help you can provide. Please don't hold the LSU thing against me!!!
