I love this site and use it constantly! One thing I really wish was available is whether satelite reception is a possibility. Lets face it, when there is no cable tv (like many of the state parks) my family is not happy. We have a satelite (mounted with Trac Vision) but often the campgrounds have so many trees that it is not an option. We enjoy college football, baseball, etc. on weekends and won't camp unless we know prior if we will have television reception. Cable TV? "no" Satellite reception? yes/no?

Thanks for listening. Any other TV fans out there?

We have a portable dish on a tripod, also -- actually, two of them. Our first coach came with a dish mounted on the roof, and we constantly had trouble with obstacles. So for our next coact, we opted for the portable dish for DishNetwork. At the FMCA convention last March, we had an internet system installed that also uses a portable dish, and we absolutely love it! Go here to check it out: Maxwell Satellite

As we live in the boonies and cannot get cable or DSL, we have the dish mounted on the house when we're home, and take it with us when we hit the road. We were able to cancel our second phone line at home, and our local ISP, so the system actually saves us money. It doesn't carry the enormous (to us) price tag that the other satellite systems seem to have. And it's about a hundred times faster than our previous dial-up system. We're happy!
