So was talking with someone today and we were both like, "wtf. Why do they always install the dish with that stupid crook to the side". It's like they installed it all perfect, then tilted it just to piss people off. The guy I was speaking with had installed his DirecTV himself, and he didn't put a lean on the dish, and he gets 92% signal (pretty good). I downloaded a .pdf from DirecTV and their self-install instructions mention nothing of needed a lean, or even to try one. So if you install these things... Why do you make the dish crooked?!?!?!?
