A seasoned installer with DTV averages between 60-80k (W2 tech) so you are making 180-240k a year?


around here its more like 50k, but after taxes and what not its about 35k, benefits of your own company is paying no taxes.
Dish -- 722k, 722, 612, 512, 510

finally automated system will activate a genie client order. It does kinda suck as you have to tell it individually to activate each device.

then there is no real way of knowing if all the clients are actually activated, if not we wont get paid for installing them. So far ive been hit by direct sat saying we didnt activate clients on same day even though it was done all on one phone call. Thats really awesome, tech does everything right, then gets dinked.....

I guess i was wrong on tech w2 pay, around 70k if your not a new guy.

You seem to have the worst luck of any tech I know. I'm very sorry to hear of your travails.
