    ...or that the truckstop 25 miles away has one of those dishes .. or that
    RtS has one on top of his truck .. or that both truckstops were on

    Actually, the TA parking lot in Cartersville Ga is on a hill.
    It sits some 15 feet above the building and the lot is extremely large.
    Most truckstops install an external antenna on the roof on a pole so that
    truckers in the "back row" can get a signal.
