Make sure you watch the military personal while they are checking your suitcases and tool boxes, get out, lock the doors, then only open one door at the time!!!.
If you like to have
TV, that's the way to go, but for some locations in Baja Sur you will need a bigger
Dish! (see below) Now the bad news:
Dish-Network, Echostar DSS system will also not work good in in Mulege and Loreto. Some clients report to have a decent DishNetwork reception with a 1.2 meter Offset Dish at Conception bay.
For DirecTV in Mulege or Loreto, You need a 1.8 meter (6ft) or better offset dish, those dishes can be bought from Winegard in the US. Problem is the cost, the wholesale price from the factory is $630 plus over $120 for freight, for this reason no jobber/dealer is buying them as they have to buy by truck load and there is no market for that, as the end user price comes close to $1,000 and even more if you add the Import duty to Mexico to it. I am looking for a cheaper source but so far have not found one for an offset dish.
My advice: If
you think of using a DSS TV Satellite system for Baja, buy RCA, or a RCA type
system, like GE, Panasonic, etc. try to stay away from Sony, Sony is very good
but the LNB is difficult to adapt to a bigger dish, (most of the 39" by PanSat
) it needs altering several parts while the others adapt very easy to a bigger
Dish, 99 % of my clients do it themselves. You can use a Sony if you buy a RCA
type LNB that can be installed in a 39" Dish.
