That's great... Thanks!
So even the far north east is not a dead zone. Never looked before.

Right. And checking www.dishpointer.com for Bar Harbor, ME, sat 110 would be at an elevation of about 19 degrees. Hence, the reason for putting your Tailgater on your RV roof.

On the other hand, with a Pathway X2 (which can acquire sat 61.5), sat 61.5 is about 39 degrees above the horizon. You could just put a Pathway X2 right on the ground . . .

. . . and you would get the HD locals.

Winegard shows that in ME, Dish110 is more like 26degrees elevation.
See: http://www.winegard.com/kbase/upload/2452277.pdf

But...at least we all know it works. So, each of us can make our own purchase decisions:

Had the original Tailgater for 2 year's and had several times were we could not get a good signal. Went to the Pathway X2 and found it to work way better. Can always switch between the Eastern and Western Arc if trees and stuff block one or the other.

I don't think anyone said you couldn't. However, you won't get Hartford, CT locals in HD.

We received 119 and 10 out to Prince Edward Island. 129 gets too low on the horizon even for a roof mounted dish,

I have the Tailgater which only gets the Little Rock Western Arc locals in SD only here in Arkansas, I got a PathWay X2 which gets both Western and Eastern Arc which get the LR locals in HD every where I have been this summer which is eastern TX and Illinois and Northern Indiana. Going to Central KS next week and I will be surprised if it doesn't work off the Eastern Arc there.

That PWx2 sounds nice but too big for my liking unfortunately.

For your listed destinations, the Tailgater/Wally set should work fine

And we have discovered here, if you do decide to go to Maine, the Tailgater will work there too.

Good to know I already cancelled that order the other day not knowing the satellite arc thing so we won't have one for this trip. I hope maybe with wifi and a Ruko maybe we can get something if it the park can handle it.
