Default Fellow tailgaters!

First off, if this should be in the locker room, please move it.

This is my first year with season tickets

Last year I went to a few games and tailgated in the fairgrounds. I bought a inside/outside antenna for my TV to watch some games last year. Of course, all I could pick up were local channels and after the games we were stuck watching the news.

I have the chance to pick up a few things from my work that they aren't using anymore:

-DirecTV Slimline dish
-2 separate receivers (h21-200/ hr21-700)

I have a few questions since I have never done tis before.

1.Will these receivers work with this dish?

2.I already have DirecTV service at home. Is it possible to just take my access card out of my main receiver and put it in one of these on game day? Or do I have to call DirecTV and get them to add the receiver on?

3.What else would I need for this to work?

Thanks in advance for any help. I know it's early, but looking forward to another great year in the cockpit.

Just bring your receiver from home. Make sure it works with the antenna you just acquired. Set it up with a tripod mount or a pole concreted in a 5 gallon bucket. Practice dialing it in at home prior to gameday.

If it is the same receiver you can just pull the card or you can add an extra receiver for the August through November.

This is what I do, however if your dish is a different type than the one at your home, you will have to change the settings when you get out there and run through the entire setup. Takes about 30 minutes usually to get everything up and running... after you find the signal.

So would I need anything besides:

-Receiver
-Tv
-Dish
-Power Source

The dish is a model AU9 if that helps any.

It would probably just be 17' slimline under settings if it's a slimline. Mine is an older 18' round non HD so I had to adjust for it. You may have the same dish that's at your house idk. I also use a heavy duty dual coaxial cable to connect dish to box. The DirecTV installation guy gave it to me for free when he installed my DirecTV at the house... I showed him my tailgate setup and he was a huge help. Pretty sure that's not standard though.

I did some looking around last night when I got home. Not sure if its the same dish since mine is on top of the house, but I did find out that the receivers are not the same. Back to the drawing boards....
