yeah, wildblue and hughesnet came out, but no luck. On top of everything else, our house is built in the valley portion of ranch. If it just could have had view north like the other tower we erected it might have worked ok. It's easy on the eyes out here, just a little hard on technology for now.
Thanks so much for the info on the 3g gps, I'm glad to hear I wont have to worry about the 3g portion. I think I'm leaning towards exchanging for that. I really appreciate your help.
