That's your antenna. Your receiver would be a Wally, Hopper, etc.

I have had a Trav'ler on the roof for over 6 years. I can count on 1 hand how often I have been in a campground and not been able to use the Trav'ler. I ask for an open/satellite friendly site. The folks are in the business of knowing there own campgrounds and we have rarely had them ask what we were referring to.
We also use a DVR with the Trav'ler so even if our overnight plans include trees we have the OTA antenna for the local news and dozens of recorded programming to watch on our Genie (I'm DTV).
If you do choose to go portable, the Pathway X2 is likely the best choice. Just be aware that it is quite a bit larger than any other dome option so it will require a bit more storage space.


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?

Thanks, Bill, I hadn't considered storage space needed...

We have both the Travl'er and a portable dish. In almost every park we have been in that has so much tree cover the Winegard did not get a signal, we couldn't find a place for the portable that could get a signal either. Chuck
