    On Dec 11th &12th, NH had a really bad ice storm and my brother was unable to get D* due to trees Blocking the 101.Well that has now changed:D
    He's been on generator power since last friday and as of this posting.Power may not be back until next week:(
    So Sunday the 14th he calls me up and told me about the trees being down so i head over there with my old RCA dish (my storm dish) and the gust room receiver c-clamped to the deck and wooo hooooo he gets the 101:D
    so he calls D* on the refer a friend # and is getting after i spoke to them also:
    1HD-DVR
    2 HD(non DVR)
    1 SD(non DVR)
    all for $99.99:D

    Cool. Just make sure that he either has his power back on, or enough generator power to run the dish, tvs & receivers while the tech is there. Lots of extension cords if needed will help too.

    The Generator is wired up to the main Panel with a transfer switch and with 7500 watts of power:D i'm sure that will be enough.

    I hope the trees are permanently down. With spring growth he could be in a 2 year contract with no signal.
