Wondering what HD programming will be lost if I just 'look' at 110/119 sats (no 129), will be more convenient when I go camping, smaller dish, less wind load, etc?

I have the Portland, Or locals which I believe are on 110, so covered on locals.

What else will I lose?

You could check on lyngsat.com to see which channels come off the 129 to see what you will miss. In not sure off the top of my head which ones, sorry :/


Good TV (Cable). Better TV (Dish Network). DirecTV.

You'll lose the majority of your national HD channels without 129 installed. There's only a handful of national HD channels that come off 110 (Guesstimate is 10-15 channels)
