How do I get a complete system?
The smartest and most economical way to get a
complete system is to place 2 separate orders. You
will need to order an
Ultra-3 Tripod here. In addition to your tripod
we HIGHLY suggest getting our
elevation tool. This
elevation tool will save you time, by aiding in
the fine tuning of your dishes elevation, without
this tool fine tuning your dish's elevation is near
impossible. After you order your
tripod and accessories here we suggest placing
an order for your
HughesNet Satellite Internet System at
You can choose any system and any plan there. They
ofeer ther best customer service and can assist you
with any issue or question you might have about
satellite internet or a tripod.
After you place both orders average install and
delivery time is 7 days. Next you'll receive a call
from your local installer. He will then setup an
install date with you. We suggest setting this date
at least 8 days from the date you placed your tripod
order, this will give you adequate time to receive
your tripod and set it up.
HughesNet does not currently sanction the
installation of tripods. What this means to you; on
you original install, your installer can decline to
install on a tripod. We haven't seen this happen
yet, but it could. What all of our customers have
done to avoid this situation is make sure the tripod
is there and 100% setup and level. This saves the
installer time by not needing to mount the trimast
mount (that the dish comes with) to a structure.
For customers that run into an installation issue or
would like to have a 2nd mount, remember you can
always have the installer mount the "Trimast" to
your house (so you have a mount on your house) and
then move it to the tripod later.
Q: How do I point this
A: After you order your
system you can download PDF
instruction. In short you will
use a laptop. Your laptop will
run software stored in the modem
to give you pointing coordinates
and signal strength.
Q: Will our
tripod work with a
HughesNet .98 system.
A: Yes, but due to
the size and weight of the dish
it is much harder to setup and
point. We do not recommend the
.98 dish for those that move the
dish more then 5 times per year.

How long will it take to setup a
