    Who is IMON ? Sounds like they are a Fiber Provider. Where are you located ?
    Why do you have (2) Dishes ?
    If you want to make some money, did up the cables and sell them to a Cable Junk Yard.

    I say leave them in place, in case you change your mind, and go back to dtv.

    i live in cedar rapids iowa, i've always had 2 dishes with directv, even when i moved. one must be for local channels? one is large and other is smaller diameter. yes, imon is local fiber provider, less than half the price of directv for cable and has superfast internet. i can't see myself paying $120/month for directv again anytime soon so i'm taking the dishes down and leaving the poles just in case i ever sell my house and future owner wants dishes.
