Do Ya'll think I have a shot?
Posted 27 March 2013 - 07:23 PM
So moving to a new house and did a site survey with Dishpointer on my iPhone. That was the only small window I could find to place a dish (see attached image). My question is... will this small window be sufficient for a SL-3? Do I need more clearance around these sats for a reliable signal? Obviously if trees are blowing in front of the dish we will have problems...
Thanks for everyone's help and recommendations,

Moving 25 feet will raise your 'beam' ~~20 feet higher.
(I don't have a 'scale' in your picture, so the numbers are very approximate)

You most likely will not get a tech to do that install because QC requires at minimum 5 degree clearance on all sats the LNB will pickup.
Right on. This is too close. Very doubtful any DirecTV tech will install this for you.

They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
