Dallas--problem getting 148

He got Dish on the phone to advise them. They offered me a second opinion, but I did not ask for it.
Does this seem normal?

Every March and October, satellites (particularly C-band, aka BUDs) go through "solar outage". The phenomenen has a double edge in that if you know the time a particular sat goes through that for your location, at that time look for the sun. If you have an unrestricted view of the sun, reception of that sat is a sure thing.

148 - 105 = 43
105 - 61.5 = 43.5
I eventually want both "wing" satellites so I can get extra locals and Sky Angel.
Looks like I'll need a tall ladder and lots of coax to make this work. I don't think putting either dish on a pole in the yard would help me much, unless it's a very tall, padded pole, more like a tower.
