I've never seen one grounded down here. They just don't do it, ever. None of my D* installs here in Slidell were ever grounded.todbnla said:I am not sure which governor of the state did this: the current new governor or the last one but speaking from someone born and raised there, this may have been a result of Katrina because after the hurricane people were scrambling to get any service, dish or cable and the demand for new installs went thru the roof because most cable tv lines were down for months after the storm. People were hanging dishes on anything they could, literally. Now having just moved to Mississippi and having my dish put up on Friday, I can say if the man that did my install was licensed, the license and test are meaningless, as he left my system un grounded which of course I learned after he left.
Wait, I take that back. I removed a 3 LNB Directv dish for a guy, it was grounded. But it was on the same pole as his electric service came to his FEMA trailer , and the ground was at the base of the pole. So it was kind of easy.:lol:
FYI I used to live in 39466, and lightning got my c-band dish and two Directv receivers. I think that area has some kind of extra conductivity in the ground or something, I have never seen so many strikes strike ground than I saw there.
Here in Slidell its not nearly as bad.
