Alarm system for dish. We use them. Basically a continuity tester for the satellite cable from the receiver to the dish. If disconnected from the dish the alarm sounds. It is quite noticeable.

False...It will keep a lazy thief away. A good man does not need a deterrent to remain honest.

We live in Texas and spend most summers in Colorado. I’ve never had a problem and just don’t worry about in. My wife was raised in Memphis Tenn. if I took Rv there I would chain it down. Just depends where your at.

two year now and no problem but I don't camp in questionable areas. I worked 25 years LE in a tourist area and investigated one theft in the 25 years. Most campers leave things in their sites as the investigate the area. Introduce your self to your neighbors, they will watch for you.

As much as the antennas cost, I am not about to offer a crook a chance to grab it and go. I have it locked with a cable to the nearest unmovable object. The cost of the cable and lock are not much compared to a new antenna.

Of course, if the crook wants it bad it bad enough, he will cut the chain or cable. But it will keep the casual crook honest.
