The dish is going to be bigger than the Phase III in order to pick up all the kA & kU signals it needs at acceptable levels.jdeaton said:DirecTV installed a SlimLine on my reinforced roof yesterday. Of course I didn't have an AT9 handy to compare it to, but its still a lot bigger than the old 3 LNB dish. It uses the bigger 2" mast and perhaps is a little cleaner looking. It also looks as though there is a space where one more LNB could be added.
The blank space on the LNB holder is reported to be a purely cosmetic feature.
