    I have an accutrac, I don't really care for it. I think the super buddy is supposedly the favorite right now. D* is coming out with the AIM which looks really nice from what I have read, I want one of those!

    Birddog here. AIM meters are being distributed to my HSP @ the rate of 12 per month as of now. So I'm anticipating getting one when I'm done with school and turning in my notice in another 2 years or so...

    I use the one built in to the receiver. Works fine.

    I bought a used Birdog I got off Ebay....absolutely love it. If you will ever be needing it in a spot where you can't see or hear the receiver, it works great! You know you're on the right bird.

    If you are only using it for personal use, this might be overkill.

    12 a month!!!! Were getting like 1 every 2-3 months! UHG!

    I use the Accutrac III+

    Works great because I mostly run service and re-peaking a dish with an ACCU is super easy if the dish is close.

    It can be a pain in the ass but it was a lot cheaper replacement for my Birdog that took a tumble off a 20ft roof :)
