    M/A-COM T6 and M2001

    Thanks Merkin for the links to the files. Thats just what I needed. All I have to do now is work out how I'm going to set my declination angle as I don't have the plate from the back of the dish with the set of degree holes in it. Of course, I don't need all the holes, just one in the right...

    M/A-COM T6 and M2001

    Thanks Merkin for uploading the manuals. They haven't appeared in the forum list yet but I'm sure that they will soon. I am most interested to see a closeup of the bracket/casting on the back of the dish to understand how it mounted to the multi-hole brackets on the mount. Just trying to...

    Saginaw HH mount

    Upon further investigation the mount is a M/Acom with a Saginaw Steering Gear motor assy installed. This motor has no mechanical limit switches as most others do. Striker

    M/A-COM T6 and M2001

    Thanks AC, actually found a pic of it else-ware. It was sure built to last. Heavy casting on the dish which I will have to fabricate from plate steel as my aluminum welding isn't up to par. :o But should not be much of a problem. Thanks to Merkin I now have approx. 170 degree travel between the...

    M/A-COM T6 and M2001

    Xmas come early Hey Merkin; thanks for the info, what a great Xmas gift, its just what I needed! :) Sure would be interested in the rest of the manuals if it is not too much trouble. I intend to mount a 10' Unimesh to this drive unit if I find that the drive has fine enough position...

    M/A-COM T6 and M2001

    Now this may get some "old" BUD users scratching their heads ( it sure did mine :) ). I just acquired an old M/A-COM satellite system, less the dish, and of course it came with no manual and/or info of any kind. The receiver is a M/A-COM T6 and the drive is a M/A-COM M2001 H to H mount made by...

    How Long Have You Had Your BUD?

    The buttonhook feed setup is a single pole attached to the center of the dish and bent on the outboard end to allow attachment of the LNA/LNB at the focal point of the dish. It was roughly formed in the shape of an old style hook that ladies used to lace their high boots of the day, hence the...

    How Long Have You Had Your BUD?

    BUDs still Rule!! Did the C-Band thing since 1980ish, starting with a 10' Prodelin 8 piece fiberglass and a receiver of unremembered manufacture, handcrank, mounted on a SkiDoo trailer to do site work. Soon after, moved to Luxor receivers and dish actuator controllers and Conifer 10' mesh...

    Saginaw HH mount

    Does anyone have any info on an old Saginaw horizon to horizon mount for a BUD. Have a chance to acquire one and at this point know nothing about it other than it had been swinging a 10' or 12' mesh dish. Any thoughts? Thanks for any info. Striker
