I'm working on contacting a local installer. Most search engine hits provide a toll-free number that seems to be a clearinghouse for local install orders. The most recent call was interesting. The rep said that if I have a good DirecTV signal I shouldn't have any problem with Dish LOS because "Dish has way more satellites than DirecTV" and the signal from Dish satellites is "much stronger" than the signal from DirecTV.

Wow, that is funny.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

So, I've had comms with a local installer, and it sounds like he's willing to do a site survey at no cost if/when he has a truck in my area for other business. A dedicated appointment would cost $50, which seems reasonable. I have time, so I can wait and see if my schedule and his match up with another nearby appointment.
