  • Will I finally have DirecTV?

    Tomorrow between 8 am and noon is try #4. I moved almost two weeks ago. I live in a three family (three story) house. Only line of sight is from the roof.

    Try # 1 - Friday February 27, 2004. DTV techs came. No forty foot ladder. "Sorry dude."

    Try # 2 - Thursday March 4, 2004. It was drizzling outside. "We're not authorized to drill into the roof when it's raining".

    Try # 3 - Tuesday March 9, 2004. It was snowing, but not bad enough to stop the tech. Except the tech forgot the forty foot ladder. Tech phones in for forty footer. Forty footer arrives one hour later. "The ice is starting to get bad. It's not like it's just drizzling or something. It would be no problem if it were only drizzling."

    Try # 4 - Saturday March 13, 2004. ??

    No. Saturday forecast calls for wind.

    No. The tech will misread "40' ladder" and instead bring a "40" stepladder".

    No. It will be too sunny for the tech to work that high up, that close to the sun.

        This is still bad netiquette, but keeping it as my avatar would be worse netiquette.

                  Is it true that forty foot ladders cost $10,000 because of the trial lawyers?

                        Dude, I had direct tv for almost 2 years. I only had 1 problem with it. On overcast or rainey days the reception was for shit. Of course here in Arizona we don't have a lot of those days, but it was still bothersome. Good Luck!!
