 Sorry, I have hooked up Hughesnet to people that have ATT and comcast.. The Hughesnet is the backup to there backup.  More people have backup then you would think..LOL I have two at my house.

@gokartergo24 interesting! 

 

Installer called me. Said he will have to drive 3.5 hours 1 way to get there. He said he would do it though unless "his truck had issues, and it has had issues before but he hopes it won't this time". He said he is leaving at 6am to get there are 930 am. He said he would bring pole equipment. Asked about the ground, I said it was soft and that Viasat guy installed a pole last weekend. DATE SET FOR SEPT 9th 9am - 11am. Will follow up as to what went down. So nuts to drive 3.5 hours.... any other state than california and you are 2-3 states away at that point.

I'm glad we are getting you taken care of, although I wish it had been sooner! 

 

Keep me updated or just shoot back a reply if you have any questions.

Just a very late thought from another remote location user.  We had to have our pole mounted (concrete set) Hughes dish realigned once, we blamed the neighbor's loose dog but it might have been a curious bear, as we had a heavy pole mounted bird feeder pushed over by a bear at about the same time (he left signs...).  We ended up fencing in the TV/Hughes dish setups to keep wildlife away from it.

That's a good idea! Thanks -- may consider it. We have bears too.

 

The guy is supposed to come out on Sunday to set the pole. EXCITING TIMES.

KatBro, that's a great suggestion, thanks for sharing!

Bears, moose, and elk are big and strong!  And young bears are very curious, that one also rolled a 50 pound salt lick around on the ground like it was a golf ball. 

 

He also left pawprints (7 feet off the ground) on the sidelight windows beside our front door, and tore up the pumpkin that was on the front porch.  Lessons learned, no more pumpkins left outside to decorate or salt licks inside the fenceline.

Wow.  I think the largest thing I get here is deer.
