I did my first mod. I made a DirecTV satellite dish stand from PVC pipe. I found the plans on another RV website. I also downloaded a free program called SatCalc1.2. This program allows me, with a simple magnetic compass, to aim the dish at the satellite. At first I used the dish next to the door on the ground, but soon discovered that putting it up on the roof was even better. I had less stuff to get in the way of the satellite up there, and I didn't have to worry about it "walking away." I found aiming it to be quite simple and easy. It was great getting Fox News and the Weather Channel while RVing.
