I am considering purchasing a winegard G3 satellite system and would appreciate any comments as to its performance, ease of use and costs. Thanks

If you'll be using the G3 with DirecTV (SD only), it'll get the job done. For use with Dish though, I recommend the Pathway X2 as the better choice. The X2 is capable of receiving both the eastern and western arc satellites for more aiming opportunities on heavily treed sites. Both dishes are easy to use with a clear line of sight to the sats.

We use the Carryout G3 with Dish Network. Permanently mounted on roof.

On start up it's slow to lock on to satellite signal but then works fine. Slowness may also be partly our Dish 211k receiver.

Gets an SD signal if no HD available.

Coach dealer installed it. Don't know his cost.

Are you a DISH customer or DTV? New or used purchase?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Bell does not work in the US much more than a couple of hundred miles South of the border.

Not sure about Bell. The G3 is smaller and slower than the G2. It grinds as it searches instead of the G2’s smooth hum. I find no difference between the two in ability to get programming..
