do I need HD service to check if my dish can even receive HD signals?

Do I need HD service before I can even check to see if my dish can receive HD signals?  I'm in the 21131 zip code.  iPhone app seems to indicate that I can receive them, but they don't show up with any strength when I try to set it up.

Setting up a HD dish can be a challenging exercise.  Consider this.  Order HD service from Directv.  If the installer can't get a good signal, you have no obligation or cost.

If you are getting good signals on the 101 chances are you can get HD without any issues.
