I'll be traveling along the Eastern Seacoast from Northern SC to Southern GA this winter. I usually spend my winters farther west and my 1000.2 has been fine. I have the 250 channel package, Platinum HD, locals when I'm near home and distant networks.

That far east am I going to need a second dish connected to the extra input on my 1000.2 or perhaps a 1000.4? What might I lose with just the 1000.2?

you shouldn't need another dish or lose anything. you'd only need something if you went farther south than orlando, or up north a good ways into New York

You should be fine in that area. The places where you will have problems are in the Florida peninsula, and MD/PA/NY and beyond. CLICK HERE and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a map showing the "exclusion" areas for Dish 1000.

If you head into the shaded areas of that map, you will have trouble seeing the satellite at 129. For the most part, that will mean you might lose high definition channels, but you should still be able to see all (or at least most) of the standard definition channels.

This is the view of the earth from the 129 satellite. You can see why the far eastern portion of the continental US has trouble getting a signal...
