All I see is the dreaded red X. :crying:

I tried typing the picture URL directly into my browser, and got a message that I don't have permission to view that page. It looks like maybe you've stored the picture in a place that we mere mortals can't see it?

Sorry, those super secret hiding spots I guess mortals can't see. :grin:

Here's the picture.

What's the Dish Network dish with the 3 LNBs (Looks kind of like the Directv Phase II +)? And what are you picking up in the NE?

That is a first generation Dish1000. But the larger one right above it also has three LNBF's and that is a SuperDish121.

I assume by "NE" you referencing the dish on the other side of the gable? That is a Motorola Canopy MMDS transceiver.

What's the NE dish pointed at? I though everything was in the S/SW?

There is no satellite. It's terrestrial. It's looking at a Canopy tower.

Explanation, Canopy is a digital RF data system that Motorola developed for municipalities. This is the same system that relays data to ambulances or police vehicles. In certain areas, where municipalities may have extra bandwidth, they lease spectrum's out to ISPs for residential use.

In some rural areas, ISPs have actually invested in the equipment to offer MMDS services. Upto 21Mbps...Not cheap stuff.
