I want to get started as a Satellite installer. What is the best path to take? I really don’t want to work directly for DIRECTV or Dish network. I would like to work as an independent contractor. I am already an independent contractor in a different industry and I already have most of the equipment except for the meter. I am looking at the Birdog Ultra. I am also looking the SBCA certification courses. Is this the best direction to go? I would appreciate and suggestions or comments. Thank you in advance for your help.

Try posting in the DirecTV or Dish installers forums. You will get more eyeballs there.
