The DIRECTV Sat-Go provides reception of satellite TV signals in areas with a clear view of the TV satellite in the southern sky. The DIRECTV Sat-Go is not intended for use when operating a motor vehicle. DIRECTV programming available separately. There is an additional fee to mirror programming from an existing DIRECTV account for each DIRECTV Sat-Go receiver.
The Z11’s satellite dish is the part that has the DirecTV symbol on the inside of the unit. This is the part that must be facing the 101º satellite in order for the Z11 to work as intended. You must have an unobstructed view of the southern sky, or in South Carolina at least the southwestern sky. The dish must be level in order to receive signal at the coordinates the receiver gives you in the setup.

SatGo Portable Satellite is Great
- Dartmouth, outh MA - 3/28/2013
Unit is very easy to set up it takes only about 5 - 10 minutes to reboot and get the satellite Signal.The only negative is the volumn is a little to soft whn you are running a generator to power it. Used it for tail gating for 2 games and its the the best.Would definately reccommend as a addition to anyones tailgating supplies.

- none, oss w - 3/28/2013
I use this at work on boring nights and it always gets the cool toy comment.It does need to be a bit more sensitive. I can only get about 75% signal strength on a clear still night and worse or none at all if small trees are in the LOS.The 75% signal level is already at a borderline strength.The dish is very suceptable to moisture. A little bit of condensation and the signal gets very spotty. A
