Satellite systems for sale

I have two satellite systems for sale. The first one is a Winegard Anser, single satellite semi-automatic asking $300.00. The second is the X2 it can see both DISH satellites and will support two TV's, if you want to watch two channels on the same satellite. I am asking $375.00 for the X2. The X2 is fully automatic, the wife and are not happy with it. Please send me a PM and I will answer you, also shipping will be on you from 36312.

Thanks for looking.

Jim

Dropping prices Anser is now $250.00 and the X2 is $300.00. We would be willing to help with shipping cost up to $25.00. The units would be shipped from 49022.

My wife and I may very will be interested in your X2, however found ourselves wondering what you didn't like about the unit. We see this unit as being our sole entertainment source once we start fulltiming next week. We would appreciate knowing a little more about your experiences with the equipment.

I will be honest with you. Winegard advertises this unit to support two TV's on two different channels and while this true, both channels have to be on the same satellite. So when my wife would visit we would have conflict over what we were going to watch. I loved the set up of the X2 hook it up and forget.

As long as both channels are on the same sat there are no problems but as stated, if on different sats then no go.

The one advantage with the X2 is it can receive from both DISH arcs whereas most of the other DISH antennas can only be aimed at either the Eastern or Western arc depending on which LNB it is equipped with. The Trav'ler will only work on the western arc for multiple sats though you can aim for a single sat on the eastern arc.

That's all I ever got when I had the dome on the roof, and it was pretty easy to get used to.

The dome could only see one satellite at a time and would toggle back and forth between satellites when the master TV selected channels. The slave TV could watch anything it wanted, as long as it was from the same satellite the master was watching.

Not a bad compromise for a fully automatic portable antenna, especially as a backup to a fixed roof antenna when trees are an issue.

Did you try Craigslist? Seems they would go pretty fast locally without the shipping issue.

Thanks Arcticman1957 & OnTheRoad, That answers the question. I had always wondered how these little units could watch two Birds at the same time. I am afraid my wife and I would have the same conflict you mentioned Arctic. I appreciate your candor, and feel we better continue our search. Thanks Darrell & Yong

Atom Ant we do have them on Craig's list advertising them for tailgating, but many of the inquiry's don't understand the pay has you go from DISH.
