    With the word out here in the forums that the Slimeline dish will be making an appearance sometime in the next few months, it leads me to a few questions:

    --Will it use the same 2-inch mast as the AT9 or the smaller mast that the Phase III dish uses?

    --Weight? Lighter than the AT9? From the pictures, it doesn't look that much smaller.

    --Advantages? I have the AT9 and other than being bit bummed about having to drill some additional holes in my garage roof to put the supporting monopoles, its been a very solid dish. Will there be any advantages to the AT9 over the Slimline? Maybe easier to align for the techs?

    -) Don't know yet if it will use the same mast
    -) Lighter then that AT-9, but probably not by much
    -) Single LNB housing, less points of failure and less exposed connections... It pretty much will be aligned the same way for techs
