    Wow, this thread came back from the boonies.

    I'm sure the rock has been tried, but not on a roof. :)

    The rock is $299 plus like $95 shipping, for that price I don't want one on my lawn or my roof. Though here in florida people might not think much of a boulder on the roof during hurricane season. ;)

    I would use the international peace sign of love.

    The middle finger comes to mind. :D

    Mount the dish, I don't think two holes hurt's a thing. Look at it as a "tenant improvement" to the rental.

    The next person who rents, might really like a pre-installed directv dish! I know I would.

    Just wanted to say to anyone living in an apartment without a balcony and really really wants to have DirecTV that it is possible to have it indoors.
    I live in an apartment with no balcony and landlord doesn't allow mounting dishes outside or on roof (only in personal spaces according to FCC). My living room window is facing south, so I got the dish and mounted on a small pipe with a wood base. The signal didn't go through the glass window (some glass windows do let the signal through), so I went with the plexiglass solution which let most of the signal through.
    Of course, having a dish by the window in your living room isn't exactly very decorative and my wife didn't (and still doesn't) like it but it is cheaper than cable and nothing beats direcTivos and Sunday ticket.
    So its possible to have an indoor dish if you are willing to live with the looks (which really isn't so bad. I have mine hidden behind a recliner).

    Maybe not!
    Did you notice that this thread is 3 and a half years old! :)

    A quick google search found this.

    Maybe to hide something else Jim, but not the dish.
