Eastern Arc Question
Posted 31 May 2010 - 07:31 PM
I can't get 129 due to a tree line. I am considering installing the Eastern Arc setup but when the Dish guy call me a few days ago about repointing my 61.5 dish he indicated that 61.5 will be terminated late this summer.
Anyone have info on this. Will it be replaced with a new sat ?

Can you be more specific about where in Alabama you are (more specifically, what locals you receive / should receive from Dish) ? It DOES make a difference on whether you need an Eastern Arc or Western Arc setup.
Assuming you get the Birmingham locals (and have all VIP receivers) - you can go full Eastern Arc (61.5, 72.7 and 77) with no problems.

I get my locals off air. (Montgomery) They are currently on 110 but I don't need them anyway.

Dish may throw a hissy fit about doing it this way..
