:lol: Back when I was servicing commercial dishes I had an "emergency" four hour service call to a hotel in Key West (approx. 320 miles away). Since it was late afternoon when I got the call and the customer was over 300 miles away I knew I couldn't make the "4 hour service trip" in 4 hours, so I called the hotel and asked them to comp me a room for the night and that I would get there ASAP. I arrived just a bit after midnight, and, sure enough, they had very little signal into the front desk from the dish. I asked the counter person where the dish is mounted and they said "around back". I proceeded "around back" to find the dish. I eventually found it and then returned to the front desk. I told the counter person to have their landscape person stop by in the morning and trim the tree that had grown in front of the dish and asked for the key to my room. ;) I should have taken pictures, but it was dark out.
