no, i'm not at all worried about my area. i was just curious if it had been done.

i just see a lot of people complaining that the signal at 129 is weak on their dish 1000 and it seems like throwing up a dish 500 for 110/119 and another dish 500 at 129 would allow for a better signal. but i guess the whole reason for wanting a dish 1000 is so you don't have to have two dishes and if you were going to go for a two dish solution, you'd be more likely to just get the wing dish at 61.5 instead since it has a stronger signal.

Yeah but a lot of people (not me) find it hard to hit a sat at 15degrees elevation (west coast).

My previous setup, dish 500 for 119/110 and another dish 500 for 129 with I adaptor. All sats go to my DPP44 switch.

New setup. Winegard 30" dish for 129 with dish 500 119/110. Here are the differences in the signal levels for the 129 sat (dish 500 vs 30" winegard columns 2 and 3). Much better.

Has anybody tried a two dish solution to get 129?
It's pretty common. I have 3.............a 24" pointed at 129, a 500 for 148 and a 500 for 110 & 119

I initially had a D500 pointed at 129°. It worked well until I replaced it with a plus dish. If you have room for a second dish it can help.
