From first hand experience, you will loose the Tailgator for Dish right across the Canadian border. In Alaska the Dish antennas are 3 to 4 feet in diameter. You will not get any signal at all, with your Tailgator so enjoy the scenery! You can't believe how the Dish antennas are angled in Alaska, looks like they are pointing into the ground.

Thanks for prompt reply! Have been aware of angles using previous satellite or as wife calls it Divorce Dish. Won't waste time. Our Sirrus radio works pretty well and we're like a few generations ago sitting around listening to some shows, news & music.

Tom and Tammy,

You will find as you go farther north you will lose your Sirius radio. Works fine in the Anchorage area and south.
