As we began Advanced Systems in the Quad Cities, USA our primary concern was the receiving of satellite signals for home television use. Study of this very new industry was essential. Courses offered by National Microtech, Inc. in Little Rock, Arkansas seemed most appropriate. So we enrolled and attended and were thrilled by all of the needed education we received. Soon afterward the Burlington, Iowa satellite dish manufacturer, Conifer Corp., was offering a technical seminar including hands on installation training. We enrolled and were further educated on this exciting new industry. Before we left Burlington we purchased three of their twelve foot diameter sectional mesh surfaced dishes with their companion indoor control receiver/actuators. We were on our way to becoming the Quad Cities "Open Mesh Specialist". No other company in the area was selling or installing the more popular "mesh" dish.
