    C band set up - cannot lock on any birds

    just because the dish was located close to you... doesnt mean the elevation/ declination was set up properly in the first place...

    Is this a good deal?

    if the actuator is new... its worth around $70- $75... and why would a mesh dish need to be washed??? :confused:

    so did you recalculate the focal point and adjust it? or did you just add panels to the dish and left the lnbf/ scalar where it was?

    Need help aiming huge BUD with 3 point mount

    10-12' Solid Bud in Sherman NY

    it for sure doesnt have a lnbf... looks like a lna and downconverter... the actuator looks totally rusted out , I doubt it would even move. 1000$ for an old heavy dish fibreglass dish... good luck with that one... mabey 100$ is a better asking price...

    Suggestions for using an existing ground mount for a heavier dish?

    I think you will be fine with 640 lbs of concrete holding that pole in place...
