Well, that sucks. I guess you can just fax them and ask for a contact number ? Or if I see one of their guys around I will try and get one for you.

The reason for this is that there is not a reason to contact them directly from their standpoint. They will not schedule "side jobs" and all contact for them goes through DIRECTV's ordering system.

What are you trying to get done?

Well, I live here now and was considering getting back into this install work as a contractor. Did it for 10 years, but put it to rest because working in rural northern areas sucks!

As it turns out, my friend is having a service call tomorrow morning. I will have him ask the tech for a number.

Working down here is no picnic. It gets pretty damn hot. Not to mention rural !! There are still people living on dirt roads not that far out of town.

If I'm able to get a number, I will PM you tomorrow afternoon. Good Luck to you.

That would be great, thanks. As for rural, I worked it in North Dakota for over 2 years, and nothing is more rural than that.

I just wanted to follow up on my post. I found the company I was looking for. Thanks for all the help guys! Unfortunatly, after reading thier contract, there is NO way I am going to work for them. The Pay was crazy low and the number of thing you can get charged back on was insane. So forget it.
