1000.4 WA DISH antenna's are actually obsolete. We currently only use 1000.2 WA DISH antennas for new WA installations/upgrades.

For EA we use the 1000.4 EA DISH antennas for new installations/upgrades.

That's too bad because DISH's 1K.4 WA Dish(which is a larger reflector) gives higher signal readings(10 points higher).:(

Guess the next step up(for more signal because of too much rainfade) from the 1K.2 WA would be the 500+ or 1000+ for the WA?.:confused:

I believe obsolete would indicate that it no longer is useful, whereas the 1000.4 WA is quite useful.

If I could get my hands on one easily, I would replace my old D1000 with a D1000.4WA, because it is BETTER than what I have.
