Re: No line of sight FIVE YEARS AGO, installed gen 4 dish anyway!
Pole mount here, too, at least for my HughesNet, anyway. My DirecTV was a pole mount at first, but the very next year the trees became a problem, so they moved it to my roof.
I like the fact that my HughesNet dish is easy to clear of snow in the winter, and it's actually situated in such a way that I can reach out my bedroom window with an extended pole and give it a light tap, or even attach a broom end on it and get to it in such a way that I can brush it off without having to go outside an trudge through two feet or more of snow to do so. The DirecTV dish, OTOH....what a pain in the rump!!!
Started with a DW6000 here. It was a good modem and one heck of an improvement over dialup. I've never had a major problem with HughesNet, and have only ever had two small ones that were fairly easily fixed...one, inadvertently, with time and the other with a new radio.
