Called Dish to change programming and they wouldn't do it because they said I need a new antenna! What a bunch of bunk. Everything is working just fine. What make's them think my antenna is bad??

You probably need a migration depending on what satellites you have installed right now. Please send me a PM with your phone number and 4 digit PIN so I can review this.

I own my equipment and the portable setup I use for camping is on a tripod. I have always set it up myself and am getting all three birds, 110W, 119W, and 129W. It's a PAYG account and works just fine.
I wanted to downgrade my service. That's a problem?

That would depend on what programming you are wanting to change to. It is best to send us a PM with your phone number and 4 digit PIN to better assist.

Downgrading to less channels.
Why do I need to buy a new antenna? Simple question should have a simple answer.
I [u:3a792syt]was[/u:3a792syt] looking into the Tailgater or Pathway X2 and am now glad I didn't go this route or it could get very expensive to buy new antennas if you wanted to change programming.

If the locals are on eastern Arc, it would require a migration. That is why they are asking to review your account.

From his post on another forum, the OP is in the Des Moines, IA market. The locals are on both arcs in HD there. I don't know of any reason he would need a new antenna.

My guess, Des Moines is migrating. Either that, or it is just not tracking on their portal correctly. Most dual arcs have switched. A few remaining. Some I know are planned to change, some not.

That could be it, I suppose...
