    Unless the aforementioned hunting and camping is taking place in areas that are wooded in any significant way.

    If you are going to have a clear line of sight the best thing is to duplicate what you have at home with the dish. This way all that you have to do is align it.

    At home, press the dash button on the remote. Does the message say SWM detected ? If yes, you need a SWM dish and Power Inserter.

    Press and hold the Info button on the remote. The system info will come to the screen. Choose More Info, scroll down and see what dish it says it is using.
