Hey Hobo,

Good to see you. Find us at:

Also known as #635 under our aka of Weigh-It. We do use Point4020 most of the time. However, it does seem like every time we're setting up there's a storm either where we're at or at NOC

Takes about 15 minutes to set up and lock on, then its internet connection 24/7. Life is good.
HI:
We have been using Direcway for 3 1/2 years. DW does not support the mobile use of the manualy pointed system. That said, there are over 500 "trypod users that I am aware of. The trick is YOU need to be trained how to point the dish. A good trypod dealer will supply you with an OPI meter for seting Signal Strength, SS and cross pol, and an installers fine elevation tool.
He/She will also be readly available (cell phone support) for ANY and ALL problems you will encounter.
If any one is intrested in more information please contact me "OFF FORUM" at:

I've tried to email you off forum but can't get to you. I would like more info on Directway internet for my RV. I don't think I could be more confused than I am right now about where to purchase the system and get it installed and connected to the internet.

Thanks....Gary

Directway is now Hughesnet. If you sign up for a new account with Hughes you will get a 9000 modem if your not careful and those are spot beamed = (not movable past a 50 to 100 mile radius)

That said, if you get a setup from a tripod dealer they will be sure you get the correct setup. Here is a sight that can help you locate some dealers along with lots of other good info and may answer lots of your questions.

This is the map page and the people marked with GREEN icons are installers and shows their locations.

Anothe good helpfull group is-
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/R...etBySatellite/

If you can find a person near you that has a tripod setup he my be able to help teach you the ropes if you were to by a used system form one of those forum or E-Bay. You would still need a dealer to commission the modem in your name but that can be handles remote

If you will be in populated areas most of the time a Verizon or ATT phone card my be the easier way for you to go. Just depends on how remotely you want to camp.

I bought 40 acres in TN and have very poor Verizon signal and same when out in the desert of AZ and NV in the winter months so a card is not a option for me.

Vela1 worked for the same company I did and is no longer doing installs or sales. The links that Hobo listed are good sources of info for you. I'd be looking at that info and he's correct that the 9000 systems are spot beamed and not good for travel. The 7000 systems are good for RV'ers buit you can't get the mobile setup from Hughesnet.
