    If you need a cell phone amplifier try Wilson Electronics I bet the could fix almost anybody up.
    Thanks for the info. Still not sure about the digital antenna you mention, thinking that I will still get a few basic channels, looking for more, like cable channels. I will check into Wilson Electronics though.

    Ok, I'm electronically challenged obviously... so:

    If I purchased this antenna system I would receive satellite without having to pay Dish monthly charges. But, then I have to mount it to my roof (not really wanting to put holes in the roof, you know how that goes):

    For this set up. portable, no roof mounting. I would need a satellite receiver and Dish service:

    For this set up. portable, no roof mounting, comes with satellite receiver. Just need to pay for monthly Dish service:

    Am I anywhere close?

    So why do you want at TV???? I like Hugh's ideas except I would definitely add Scrabble. Then you can spend your spare time fighting over what is a word and what isnt and who gets to choose the dictionary!

    Ten, I live in the country and have no cable access. So I have Dish. I bought a Dish Tailgator and now I only have to take a box(the HD 211 I believe), from my house and I have Dish wherever I go. Costs me nothing when I leave the house and go on the road anywhere. You do have to call Dish and have them give access to the local channels where you happen to be located. The Tailgator is a small Dish with a 50 ft. cable that will find the satelites. If you don't already have Dish, there is a monthly charge of 35-40/mo(I think). There are some problems and I will be glad to help you should you go this way. Just PM me if you choose this.

    The Dish costs about $350.00.

    We lived in our camper for 7 months while our house was being built. Lived with an antennae for the TV and a smart phone with "hot spot" capability to make any computer with wireless capacity have internet capability.

    Direct and Dish both have RV satillite TV available on roof mounted or portable dishes. I use Direct on my RV for TV, gets me everyting I have at home. With all of the elctronic devices today there are many options for internet connections. I would sugget visiting an RV forum and get answers to the internet best solutions.
