Where are we?

I added a link to this page under "Other Links" that will answer that question. It links to a map used by many of us who have Hughesnet satellite internet systems. The majority of the users have a unit made by Datastorm that is mounted on top of their RV's and automatically finds and locks on to the satellite, but many also use a tripod mounted system like we do.

There is an option at the top right side of the map to link to Google Maps using our location. You can toggle to see a satellite view from there. No, you won't be able to see our trailer.....

I have to manually update our location every couple weeks or it drops off the map. I'll try to remember to keep it updated.


  1. If it weren't for Dallas and Ft. Worth, it looks to me as though you are sitting in the middle of nowhere. The names of the towns north, east and west don't ring a bell.

  2. Mom -- The map centers on us and you can zoom it in or out by clicking on the + or - down by our name below. I guess I should have mentioned that we are number 608. The map always shows any members who are in the same area.
