I relented a few years ago, hooked up existing dish on home to allow NFL package and pay the extra monthly fee. No other reason, use another source for viewing pleasure. Anyways last year had to upgrade the dish for HD, that was a chore doing it myself. But got it done. So this year didn't think much when the midwest storms knocked off the dish from rooftop. So I waited until time to reinstate service, Aug 1 - and installed dish back on roof in pretty much the exact same spot as last year. Only this time wasn't able to find signal as easily as before. It's a no brainer - set the tilt, elevation - and azimuth. But something wasn't hitting. So finally had wife just sit in basement while I moved the dish around, and for some reason the elevation had to be raised a few degrees and there it was. Point is don't just rely on your or their number, things can and do move around, or my install - though level - was off a skotch! Bring on the games!
