My just installed RF Mogul for Dish took less than 4 min to lock on to all the WA Dish sats the first time. It's very fast to acquire since the controller has it's own GPS unit.

I had a Dish Travíler that failed. I opted to drop it in the trash and replaced it with a RF Mogul. As a bonus I was able to upgrade to the Hopper 3 system. As I installed my dish and purchased it directly from RF Mogul I had some conversations with them. They tell me that to receive the eastern arc you need to change the LNB and install a different firmware which is easy to do. Not verified, but I have recently seen an advertisement for a hybrid WA/EA LNB that conceivably eliminate the need to change the LNB back and forth. I plan to check with RF Mogul on this and also as of a few weeks ago they were working on a new EA firmware.

I returned from a 12,000 mile trip to Alaska and the primary reason I upgraded from a dome to the RFM was to receive in Alaska.

We had HD TV for the entire trip going as far north as Fairbanks. Only 3 nights out of 10 weeks did we run into poor reception and if I wasn't too lazy, could have moved the coach and had better reception.

Never owned a Traveler but have nothing but good words for the RFM.

Dealt with Winegard numerous times on two different Travlers. I hate them with a passion. Their cuatomer service is horrible. Required to send the assembly back to them for service? For me thats 300 dollars as a start. At least RF Mogul can be repaired right on your roof.
