DISH has a new product, the Winegard Pathway X2 portable satellite dish antenna. There are a couple really great things about this. First, it's automatically self-pointing and you can connect it to two HD solo receivers. That means you can set it up at a tailgating party and use dual satellite receivers. On top of that, the antenna can track with either the Eastern or Western satellite arcs. So if you're stuck parked next to a building that blocks your view of the western arc, you can switch over to the eastern arc and pick up all your channels.
So whether you're boating or tailgating, or driving across the country...when you set up for the evening, the Pathway X2 is going to let you grab onto those DISH channels wherever you are. It also is fully HD, so you're getting 1080i channels to your HD television through the connected 211 series receiver.
The X2 is weather resistant, lightweight, and it's powered via phantom power through the coaxial F connector. This looks to be an incredibly versatile antenna. Priced at just $449 for the antenna, it's also incredibly affordable. I think these are going to fly off the shelves when they debut next week (October, 2013).
