You don't need it on the receiver. Your locals are tied to your service address. If you connect an AM21 OTA tuner to the receiver then you need to add it so it knows what locals you should get for the OTA channels but that's it.
It may ask for your zip code if you go through the satellite setup for aiming the dish but I son't know if it still does that.
