Installation Troubles - AT9
Posted 20 September 2006 - 07:56 PM
Bottom line: they must get paid either way because there wasn't a lot of effort put into finding an agreeable installation. I said no to the pole and sent them away. I called D* to cxl and switch to cable and they persuaded me to speak to another installer or supervisor. That person is supposed to call tomorrow. What a pain. I like D* (been with them for 8 yrs with Sat-T60, HR10, etc). Maybe they can work something out.

My P3 [and preceding] was fastened to the end soffit = 1x10 over a 2x10 rafter. We're all flat roofs in NM. He took a look at the original install. Realized there was a rafter behind the end board. Took off everything for the P3 right down to the "foot" -- and installed the AT9 in exactly the same spot.
Rock solid. Last night a line storm went through with 50 knot gusts and some areas getting up to 8" of hail. Nothing budged. Though I did turn everything off for ab't 10 minutes while the lightning strikes were 8-10/minute!
