How many satellite dishes are on your apartment building

Today when I was on the freeway I passed Trainman's apartment building and notice on the SW side from the freeway there was about 20 dishes on the building. So how many dishes are on your apartment building?

No I'm not stalking him

I just helped a friend install his DTV. I saw at least 15 dishes on building 6. He has 20+ buildings in his complex! In my complex I have counted a total of 4! Do any installers specialize in apartment installs?

It sure would be nice if more parament complexes installed a Multi-Dwelling Unit System.

0.

The apartment complex has a no dish clause in the rent, and no one has been willing to challenge it, apparently. (I would have, except for the fact that: 1) they provide cable for us free of charge, and 2) there's no decent place that I can put a dish with a southern exposure.)

The apartment building across the road from me has several dishes. I count 3 -- on one apartment! They have a DirecTV dual LNB dish, as well as 2 Dish Network dishes. All mounted on the same railing.

My townhome row (about 12 houses in two chunks) has three: my 18x24 oval on the front (due to tree-age), and one on the far end with two round dishes picking up 101 and 119 separately.

My building isn't the one that's visible from the freeway...there are three buildings in the complex, and on my building, there are only three dishes, last I checked, including mine (all on posts on top floor balconies on the west side, pointing southeast up over the roof...I think there are too many trees in front of the building for people on the east side to put up dishes).

Three. Two of them are three sat dishes, including mine, and the other one is a dual LNB single sat dish. One of the 3 sat dishes I know isn't in use, because the people who had it moved out and the new tenants have cable.
