    As requested. Cell phone photos so quality is not too good, and very windy so there might be some snow blowing around.
    Note the John Deere green bracket with holes drilled to match 1 degree spacing, figured I could wiggle the mount around enough to line up the focal point(s). This green aluminium bracket was part of a larger assembly that was removed from a combine. The spacer used between the LNB mount and the bracket isn't actually a conduit, but part of a 1/2" connector minus the nut and gasket for SJ type cable. That's what I had that worked best in my tool caddy.
    Also note the way the side-mounted LNBF is set back from where the center one is. Not sure why this is, doesn't make sense geometrically speaking but it works. That has always been a wierd dish. The string helps to keep the arm from sagging under the weight of the added assembly.

    Smart design, as it allows a lot of various positions for LNB's. I guess the sleeves of different height could be cut from copper pipe. The C-channel probably is not available with holes - I guess you drilled them yourselves? A picture is worth, indeed, a thousand words. Cheers, polgyver

    Yes the sleeve spacers could also be cut at the proper angle to properly point the LNBF using the default LNB brackets. Yes the C-channel was drilled with 3/8 holes to closely represent spacing between satellites and the loose fit of the small bolts through the larger holes allows for some error in the drilling. Since this particular 105 deg LNBF was installed it has worked flawlessly. Was planning to properly dress the cabling and switch once the weather warms up but I am afraid to touch it now that it works so well!
