    Hi all, cool site you have here. Had been a "E" person for a long time than switched to cable. Going to ditch that and switch to DTV. install is set for next week. Hopfully all go's well and they have a HR24 on the truck:D. Anyway, i checked the LOS on dishfinder and it appeares i'll be fine. Sone rather tall pines across the 4lane about300 Ft. away but i think they would have to be 230Ft. tall to cause any problem. My location is lat.44.6968 lon.-90.2127 if anyone would like to conferm it for me. I'll post how the install go's next week. cheers

    Looks like the trees have to be over 110' to be a problem :)

    holy crap that is marshfield WI, i tried to get a job at Roehl. how funny.

    I had a few delieveries. I wound up working for SWift till iwas laid off.

    anyways 54449 amazingly you are only in the FS North feed.

    your in the brewers, bucks, wild territory.

    not sure if you will get the other FS minn teams but if you do they will be in an alternate.

    example say you were living in iowa, that state, has 6 sports markets so you have to have all the local regional sports networks for those teams.

    but in your case if you order any sports packages just the teams mentioned above will be blacked out.

    well, when i was in trucking school, the main issue on why i was turned down was i had too many jobs prior. i said to them im sorry for having crappy jobs im going to school to try and get a great job.

    you think you can speak to him for me. I been trying to get back into driving again.

    I would be willing to pay for a re fresher course if you talk to him let me know what he says.

    i been more stable since 2008 when i applied. I'm sure if i applied now it would be good.
