RE: Direct TV

>>Can a boat anchored on a lake or river be held steady enough for decent reception of >>Direct TV without any high dollar gear?<<

I have not been successful in using DirecTV at anchor without an automatic adjusting system.* Even in the no wind, no current situation the boat will swing a foot or more in each direction and I would lose reception. One DirecTV disappointment was that my DVR (before Track It) would not work at anchor because it couldn't lock on a Satellite.
