It only gets the Western Arc satellites and not the Eastern Arc. That in itself would keep me from even looking at this.

I have camped in lots of places where tree coverage has forced one arc vs. the other.

Do you see all three stats, I have read 129 isn't visible so only SD channels. Trying to decide between the Pathway X2 and the Tailgater 2, which is smaller and easier to store.

I had the Tailgater but sold it and got the pathway x2 since it does both Eastern and Western arcs. I've stayed many places that I had to use one or the other arc to get coverage. I also have a roof mounted dish that is total worthless unless you stay in a parking lot.
