Im switching form a sd dish to a slimline dish for hd and a hd dvr. My existing dish is mounted to my power pole about 8 feet behind my house. This is an 8ft tall pole that is the same as the phone and power company use. Since I live in a double wide mobile home this pole has my power meter and all installed on lt. When my straight out of high school installer came out last week he said he was unable to mount the new dish in the same place as the old dish (on the power pole). He said the new dish must be mounted on a mono pole or the wind would knock it out of adjustment since its a much bigger dish. We talked about putting it somewhere that did not require a new pole to be put in the ground and he said his superviser said all mobile home installs must be put on a pole and since the ground was so wet he was unable to do it that day. I dont want yet another pole in my yard. After talking with D* they said I can have it any where I want it. Can somebody please tell me if a new pole is needed for some odd reason or should the new dish be able to be mounted where my old one is. Thanks for any help.
