I have been a Dish customer since almost day one. I am finally planning to switch over to HD, but I seem to remember I had difficulty getting a decent line of sight to the two satellites when my Dish 500 was first installed.

The installer finally went to a pole mount and ever since my reception has been fine.

I understand that a new satellite dish will need to be installed for HD and was wondering if the satellite location will be approxamately the same.
Thanks

The three satellites are in close proximity so the signal is picked up by the single dish. This is with either the WA or EA. You will normally only have one dish installed for the three satellites. Your installation will probaby remain the same. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.

Western Arc/Eastern Arc. Its a term used to associate your installation with which birds you are pointing at as Dish has them on both arcs to accommodate most customers and potential issues like a tree being in the way for one set.

Got it,
Thanks to all.
In Northern Maine you may not be able to see the Eastern Arc satellites and can almost be gauranteed that 129 will be too low in the sky. Give Ray your account number or phone number so he can see what is available to you.:)
