Satellite dish

I'd like to get a Directv portable satellite dish. I've been looking at an 18" round dish that receives SD signals on one satellite (101). I've been trying to find out what channels this thing will receive and I can't find this information anywhere, at home I get everything but premium channels and will use the same box in the RV. Calls to the supplier and Directv was a waste of time. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

I received everything with 18" fixed and I currently receive everything with my VuQube. I get the premiums, but not HD.

I am ok not having HD's on the road... that is part of "roughing it" lol.

I use this



Found it on Craigslist for $30. For transporting the frame sits in my trucks bed between the tailgate and the hitch and I put the dish in front of the hitch weighs about 25 lbs total. I have a dedicated H25 receiver. It takes me less then 10 minutes or so to set it up. The DW watches the signal strength numbers and calls out the numbers to me with a walkie talkie.

The standard 18" round dish will pick up the same direct tv service you receive at home. Satellite 101 serves all the SD channels in the lineup. You need to have at least 60% signal strength to pull those channels in.

Satellite Dish

Thanks for all the replies and information. SatPro is the supplier I was going to order from, they have a good number on Ebay, I tried to call the other dealer, Satellite Oasis, for two days just to get info and got disconnected every time. Thanks.
