    I've just been informed that ca halls in Richmond, VA, Pittsburgh, PA and possibly Crownsville, MD have multiple sattelite dishes and antenas. Does anyone know why?

    They get money from the people that own them to have them placed there?

    It's usually about the money.......

    Do they COs, DOs, or caretakers that live in them?

    Crownsville, MD does have residents in it (although not at the moment since they are rebuilding it).

    Most Assembly Halls, at least the ones built in the last 20-30 years, have 2,3, maybe 4 apartments in them. One for an Assembly Hall Overseer who lives there and is a building caretaker, one or 2 for a DO and/or maybe a CO, and one or 2 for visiting speakers from Bethel or other visiting "dignitaries".

    Probably the satellite dish is for the ones living there.

    My thought exactly, sir82.

    I think the sattelite dishes are old school technology that has been replaced by high speed internet.

    I remember seeing the sattelite dish at several sites. I doubt they are used anymore. I doubt they were ever used to beam the talks to heaven.

    We still use a small dish from Directv. It is still a feature seen all over in the midwest.

    Are they DirectTV or Dish units? Or are they of other types? Sattelite communication with the AH's - I doubt it though.

    Thanks for the responses. But these sattelites are much larger than what would be used or Direct TV. Some of them are 6 or 8 feet wide. There are residents in all of the halls listed.

    They could be old ones that they don't use any more. We drive by houses out here with those big ones and they have the directv/dish ones on the house.

    Maybe they channel messages from God..........ha

    If these were located in Brooklyn, NY, a reasonable guess would be they are Jehovah's method of communicating with the governing body.
