If you lived outside these areas you may have got a receiver, but the 18" dish has always been available. The DBS system was built around the small dish.


Yeah, I was around at the start, and don't recall a time when the dish wasn't part of the package.

i'm not going to argue with you, but the Thomson Consumer Electronics(RCA) standard set consisted of DS1120RW receiver, a metal dish, single LNB, remote $699. The RCA DS1120RW advanced system had a plastic dish and a dual-LNB $899.

Initial testing was done by 300 Directv employees then was released in 5 markets : Albuquerque, NM; Jackson, MI; Little Rock, AR; Tulsa, OK: and Shreveport, LA.

If you lived outside these areas you may have got a receiver, but the 18" dish has always been available. The DBS system was built around the small dish.


Anybody else find it ironic that the grim reaper responded to the "You're Dead Wrong" post?
