    Yeah, it seems sickening that you can get TV anywhere for such a good price, but it's not as good as it seems.
    I have this. I live in PA. Unfortunately, I get almost 0 signal depending on where I take this. The instructions even state that there's a line cutting through PA, and anything north & east of that gets spotty reception because the tailgater only accesses satellites from the west. I already had a Dish account, so it worked fine for me when I was in a location that could get signal, but I tried in Delaware and got nothing. I called Dish, and they said it doesn't work at all in Delaware. I tried in State College, PA, and I get just a few channels. Not ESPN. That's pretty much what I want to watch when TAILGATING.... So I have this, and I really can't recommend it.

    Dude, Get a generator and bring your receiver, antenna and TV along for full access. You just need to rig up an antenna stand with a cement base. Hell, you might even be able to use a good inverter if you bring a small TV. It may not be pretty but I bet it will work.

    BTW, don't forget to bring a compass.
