E* is missing 35 markets. D* is missing 80. Which ones they choose to carry is up to the carrier. There are only 33 markets (per E*) that are not covered by E* or D*,
so true. I can get KEYC with my antenna and most of the news some nights is about the Twin Citiesdartonviper said:And there is just so much going on in the Mankato area to broadcast.
whoops...someone forgot to change backThat is why I waste so much gas trying to find fake addresses. I went for an eighty mile road trip the other day just to find a wide open corn field. When the customer finally called in to dish wondering where I was dish gave them my #. When I ask him where the heck he lives it was only 4 blocks from my home. I can see this happening alot in the near future.
what can they get with the big antenna? the big 4 or all of them?In the last week we have gotten over a hundred OTA jobs in the 4 county area that is affected in southern MN. Unless you are at least 40' in the air all they get is KEYC. This results in very unhappy customers.
The Mankato Free Press has big page ads for Direct last Friday in regards to the distants issueThere has already been serveral people switching to D in the past week.
huh? The 625 can't record OTA...its just a pass throughI have had 2 customers tell me that they already have an ota but the dish reps told them that the antenna that we would install would enable them to record on their 625.
Ya know, I understand where they are coming from, But please answer your phone and please list a cell #, gas ain't cheap when you drive 150-250 miles a day 7 days a week.TonyM said:whoops...someone forgot to change back
It all depends which side of the valley and hills they are on. With the river running thru there sure throws a curve. but if everything is right a few of them can get everything. Unfortunatly most are not willing to invest in a tower and I'm getting old enough to start respecting heights.:grin: therefore they can only get keyc. Unless you live in lower kato, the tower is on top of that hill and the signal blows right over. I had an ota install down there a couple of years ago, what a waste of time for everyone.TonyM said:what can they get with the big antenna? the big 4 or all of them?
If I remember right I think I saw where Direct was offering $150 for switching. Can't say that I blame any customer for switching even if they are still in contract.TonyM said:The Mankato Free Press has big page ads for Direct last Friday in regards to the distants issue
You are correct!TonyM said:huh? The 625 can't record OTA...its just a pass through
