    my dish is on top of a 40 foot tower that i installed 15 years ago. I live in a valley between 2 mountains in charleston WV 101 sat is fine. I cant get the 110 & 119 because of the mountain & trees I would like to change my dish to pick up the HD channel on 99 &103 since they are at a higher elev. I would like to know what new antenna I would need to get & since I cant see 110 or 119 what is the best way to adjust a new dish. I Will Have to install the new dish since it is 40 feet in the air. any comments would be helpful for a newbe in the group. Thanks

    You need a slimline 3 which is just starting to be used. Install is almost like installing a round 101 dish except it is bigger, and a tiny bit trickier.

    Who makes the slimline 3 & can you align it without getting the 119

    The Slimline-3 dish is very new and is in limited rollout right now. It may be a month or two before they start showing up at retailers, and possibly more before they start being commonly used in your area. You may need some patience.

    The Slimline-3 just picks up 99/101/103, so it sounds like it would likely work for you.

    I would look for them on ebay or from www.solidsignal.com, but I don't know if they are there yet or not.
