Satellite T.V

Recommended Posts

I have Dish 500.

It's basically the same package I have on my house. Yes, there is a reciever. I jumped in on a package deal where I got 2 receivers and 2 dishes, and monthly service for the price of just 1.

Mounting the dish to the roof with magnets makes it real easy to move the dish around to get it "sighted in."

My friend bought a two receiver system when it came he had two dishes. One goes on the fishhouse. He brings one of the two receiver boxes to the lake so theirs no additional charges. You have the same package of programs on the lake as you have at home with no upcharge. He uses and inverter to power the receiver.

I have one.

I have the dish mounted to magnets. That way when I get on the lake I can just attach the dish and move it around until it's fairly well aimed in.

This is about the easiest way to get reception on the ice, and perfectly legal! The best part; No trees around to mess with your signal. Just point south and fine tune from there. I think most people will get better reception on the open ice than they would on their wooded house lot.

Yet another reason to get on the ice this winter, like any of us needed one.

I put Satellite on my house on Mille Lacs. It was the best move I ever made, especially the way the fishing went most days! I have direct tv and 3 recievers at home. I got an extra dish from a buddy and mounted it on my house on the side with the door, since I always have it facing south out of the wind. Then I bring the box from home, turn it on the signal meter set up and turn the volume on the TV up real load so I can hear the pitch as I tune it in. Works great. I have one deep cycle battery and it powers my TV, satellite box, and inverter for about 6 hours. Good luck,

Chadice

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
