I'd have 3 - 3m dishes, one for each satellite, on their own trailer pulled behind my 5th wheel. :listening


No fourth dish for international channels? :rolleyes:

..... One would need two dishes ... one if parked in an eastern arc location and one if parked in a western arc location. .

 

 

Actually, you can do with one dish and two LNBs, an East and a West.

Just use whichever LNB you need.

It might be easier to change out LNBs than use the other dish. You do need the right dish to be able to simply swap LNBs. Not all dishes are interchangeable.
