It’s A Tough Job… by Michael Landry, Memphis Market

On Jan. 20th, 2012, I experienced a really tough job. It was a five box install, one HD DVR and four standard IRDs. Upon arriving at the customer’s house I greeted the customer and went inside to see where all the receivers were going. The customer then began to show me where the receivers were going. Upon the walk-through, the customer showed me that she had two separate attics and two separate crawl spaces. I then went outside to begin my site survey. The dish was going to have to be placed on the right side of the house while the ground source was on the left side of the house. I then began to run my lines from one side of the house to the other through the two separate crawl spaces. Then after getting the wire to the other side of the house and attaching it to my ground block, I then ran my wire into one of the attics. I put my switch in the first attic and dropped my wires into the rooms, then I had to find a way into the other attic. I searched and finally found a small hole that ran into the other attic. I pushed my wires through, grabbed the wires, and dropped them down to the final rooms. Finally I got my receivers activated and got the job done. It took me around five hours to finish the job, but I got the job done and the customer was happy which made the job well worth it.
