    A Proud New Owner of A DishNet System!

    Good Afternoon from San Antonio,

    I ordered my new 4500 DishNet system and installed it this
    week and I am very, very pleased!!!

    Wow, what a nice picture and I still get local programs with
    a great JC Whitney omnidirectional antenna for $88.95 plus
    $14.95 shipping, catalog 37cg5867u, phone orders 1-312-431-6102
    or fax 1-312-431-5625. Had to buy a tv pole and chimney mount
    at Radio Shack. San Antonio is known as a very, very hard place
    to get a workable off-air TV antennae to work! Or, pay $4.95
    to get DishNet's local channels if available in your area. I love the
    way the remote switches from Dish to Local Channels very seamless.

    The DishNet system was very easy to install, the only problem
    I had was figuring out how to ground the darn thing
    because no one wants to say other than the NEC electrical code
    way to do it -- at the electrical house ground. I finally used a cold water
    copper pipe that is buried in the foundation.

    I bought mine on the internet at a site in Washington state.
    All went very well and I had it in via UPS in 4 days. I highly recommend
    Ric Sutter (he will email you the UPS numbers and you can track
    your order), located at:

    Premium System with one full year of America's Top 50/
    DISH CD (Model 4500) $179 which includes UPS shipping,
    + $300 for one year of America's Top 50.

    I did add the chimney mount,the Pananex surge protector,
    a spare remote for upstairs, and a RCA remote telephone unit.
    The install kit was free but I had to ask for it since it
    is a Echostar promotion at some outlets, but not at others
    -- the kit did not have much in it thatI needed , except the
    high quality RU6 cable and the grounding block.

    I ended up going to Home Depot and buying a crimping tool, $26, and some RG6 connectors so that I could cut the cable and feed it through my wall.

    All internet Dish Net dealers are located at the following site with prices updated:

    As far as the price of the stock -- I will wait for it to get to
    15 before I buy it -- that loss of -6.98 is SCARY -- LARRY!!!

    Here is what it is right now on 6 Feb 98:

    A Great Product That Will Make $$$$$ once it surpasses a break even
    point -- what is the breakeven point ? --- 1.2-1.6 Million subscribers.

    Stay Tuned! Count me happy in San Antonio! Dr Gold
