Depending on what market you are in, local channels could be on 101, 99, 103 or 119. You are apparently in a market where they are not on 101. Check the tips and resources forum, there is a thread that lists all the transponders on all the satellites, and what is on each one. From that you should be able to determine where your locals are. Then you can get the appropriate dish to receive them (either the Phase III or a Slimine).
