Tailgater - Highly Recommended!
By GA Bulldogs Gang
from Johns Creek GA
The Tailgater is unbelievably simple to use. We used to spend an hour or two setting up our satellite dish at our college football game tailgates. The Tailgater takes less than 10 minutes to get an HD signal to our tv now.Helpful hint: the first time the Tailgater is used it does take more time to set up since you have to communicate with your service provider. We did the first setup in our driveway BEFORE we actually needed to use it. We were on the phone with DISH for 30 minutes. In the end, we were set to go.Highly recommended!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent product! So simple to use!

Excellent product and unlike the Wineguard it only needs one cable that is run from your receiver to the dish cube. Just set it where you can see a Southern sky and the dish receiver will locate and tune the sats for you. So simple a cave man can do it. Dish rocks!
