The primary satellite antenna of Dish Network was merely known as the DISH Network dish. After the very fact, it was named the DISH 300 at which period the authorized and satellite issues triggered problems for the upcoming DISH 500 techniques. It makes use of single LNB to obtain signals from the 119?W orbital position, and is normally used as a second dish to acquire extra excessive-definition or ethnic programming from either the 148?W or sixty one.5?W orbital positions.
