    Last year i had Direct TV come out and they could not get a good signal because of a tree in my neighbors yard. they said the tree is about 4 feet to big. do you think i will have this problem with Dish?

    You must have a clear line of site for each satellite you want to "see". A decent compass will get you the azimuth. I usually guess on the elevation.
    You may be able to get Dish since the main sat at 119 is to the right of the DirecTV sat at 101. Dish's secondary sat at 110 is only slighty to the right of Direct so that may be a problem.
