I'd like to purchase the equipment and install Hughesnet here in Belize. I'd appreciate any tips on websites, tutorials, hazards, and anything else that may help. It's about $1,500 USD to purchase and have someone install the units for you here! I need to avoid this charge or perhaps start installing them here for money!

In Belize you will want a 1 to 1.2m dish. Some have advised they have the .74m (or std. US size) but speeds are limited.
You also need the 7000 series older systems. The new Ka 9000 series will not work.
I can answer those questions & provide some help if you want to call.
contact Tom@CountrySideNet.com and provide your location and phone number, & best time to call.

Sounds good. I don't have my new phone on me but here's my cell phone here.  501-626-8701. I'll be busy this weekend but free Sunday evening on. Try anytime after that.
