It sounds like you may have a permanent site? Before purchasing anything I would check to insure you have a clear view of the satellites. There's an app for the iPhone which can help
not sure if there's an android equivalent.
The other thing to note is you're in NY State. Depending what your needs are the Tailgater might not be the best choice for you because of the limitation of the HD satellite not able to receive 61.5 which is higher in the sky than the one it does at 129.
King Controls makes a "Flex" which is identical to the Tailgater (they make that too!) but WILL receive the 61.5 satellite making it a better choice for us northeast guys. It also costs more but again a site survey would determine if you need it or not.
If you are permeant, then it would probably be best to get a more permanent setup with a larger residential dish.
First thing I would do in any case is get a site survey as to what satellites you can and can not view so you can make the best choice.
