Sorry to take so long in posting this here, but, sometimes the time does get away from us… (Anyway, better late than never.)
For those of you that used to get Bell Express Vu in our area, you will no longer be able to receive information from that Satellite system anywhere in Florida (and many other locations you might have been able to in the past.) This is because the signal foot print has been moved far North and cannot be seen at all in our location. (In fact, it isn’t available any place we know of in the SouthEastern United States.)
We already know many of you have already discovered this for yourselves but we did want to mention it for those of our friends that may not know about it yet. If you have questions about this, we do suggest you communicate with Bell Express Vu. They can answer your questions, we can’t…)
You can receive DirecTV and Dish Network in our area as long as you have clear view of the Southern to Southwestern Sky, (Dish Network also has their Eastern Arc in the SouthEastern sky.) Most all of the RV Domes and temporary Dishes get them quite nicely. In fact, if you’ve been wondering about those temporary Domes like the Tailgater and the Winegard Carryout, we know they work very well also. (Shaw is also availble but you have to deal with them directly for equipment and services. Our experience with customers of theirs in the last several months has yielded very good reviews from their customers’ experiences with them. In fact, some companies we know of could take a few lessons from their Customer Service Department… but that’s a whole other story in itself…)
As always, you cannot receive very good signal (if any at all) through trees or other obstructions. It does help to know where your satellites are located in the sky, especially with the multiple satellite locations that exist for the companies these days but we’ll let you know more about that in some up and coming articles.
Stay tuned to our site because we have some very good informational articles coming in the next days, weeks and months specifically aimed at reception through the RV satellite receiving equipment of all kinds and your off-air antenna reception in our area. We think you will enjoy them and also find them informative and educational.
Like we’ve always said, this is your place for great information on Antenna and Satellite reception and we intend to make it even better in the near future… Check back with us soon!!! We think you will be pleased with what you find here…
Visit us next week to find out why we like the newer portable Satellite Domes. Get the full details next week, right here at the Norman TV View…
