    New to C-band, looking for 6' starter dish.

    I'm very familiar with dishpointer.com. I don't have a smart phone capable of that app. I am thinking of buying some sort of angle measuring device... one that will give me an idea of how high the satellites are above the horizon. Any suggestions?? Whenever I have the satellite elevation...

    New to C-band, looking for 6' starter dish.

    Putting a C-band dish in my yard that has a clear view of the whole arc is impossible... I either get 40.5W-91W on one side of my house or 107.3W-139W on the other side of my house. Which is the better option? I imagine that if I play around, I could get 91W - 107.3W if I really try to locate...

    New to C-band, looking for 6' starter dish.

    The picture above shows the type of dish that would be ideal for me. I like how it has the circular shaped base to set the dish on. I'm having a difficult time finding one of these. Does anyone know of a reputable supplier with a good price??? I would like a 6' dish to start me into...

    CBC at 107.3W

    I'm wondering if it would be possible to receive the CBC channels with a 1.2 meter dish and scalar ring since the signal is so strong. Any thoughts on that?

    CBC at 107.3W

    I was reading from other forums that people around the country have had success with being able to watch the CBC channels with 6' dishes. According to Satbeam.com, I should be able to receive the signal from Anik F1 with a 110 cm dish at my location. I would be willing to pay for a 6' dish...

    Setting up a C-band Dish

    I'm considering a dish with a mount like this. I'm not sure, but is this specific mount called a "ground mount"? Sadoun's website isn't clear on that, and if I ordered a dish, I would be interested in one like this. Iceberg, I saw some pictures of your various dishes you posted on your deck...

    Setting up a C-band Dish

    That can hold a 6' dish? My wife probably wouldn't like that on our deck. How wide is it? Perhaps I could plant a garden in that square shape to make it look nice.

    CBC at 107.3W

    My family owns a cabin in Ontario, and watching CBC and CTV is always nice. The news is a bit different. Here in Ohio, I'm too far to receive any Canadian OTA channels, and there is never anything mentioned about Canada. It's like some mythical distant land. I'd like to have the option of...

    Setting up a C-band Dish

    I'm tempted to get into C-band with a 6' solid dish. My idea is to get a large bucket, fill it with concrete, and mount a pole inside the concrete. I want to use this to set on my back deck and move it around when I want to so that I can point at different satellites. I have a clear view of...

    CBC at 107.3W

    Does having a solid dish have any advantages over a mesh dish with signal quality? I'm thinking of buying a solid dish from Sadoun. They're within driving distance of me. I was planning on getting one of those dishes with the round base which I can put some sand bags to hold it in place...

    CBC at 107.3W

    For now I just have a motorized Ku setup, and am considering a 6' dish... the kind that's solid and comes in panels that need attached. I am aiming to receive some Canadian channels, and Lyngsat shows the CBC channels ITC on Anik F1. Is anyone having luck receiving these? If so what's your...
