Dish Network


Has something changed with Dish's footprint? Used to get 129 (6 foot dish) and 119 (4 foot dish) pretty good in Cabo San Lucas...now it seems the signal strength is a lot lower. Anyone else experiencing that?

According to satbeams the Loreto/Mulege does not get reception from 119/129. The same site still shows Cabo getting it with a min. 1M dish. Don't know how current that site is though...

After heavy winds your dish might need to be adjusted, 119, 129 working in Buena Vista.
