    Complete newbie

    If you can use this, come and get it, its free for the taking. It is a ChannelMaster 75e and I *might* have an LNBF and the bolts for it. It can be in SE TN about 118 miles from you. I'll be there the Fri after Thanksgiving for about 3 weeks. Let me know before Thanksgiving and I'll take it...

    Impressive! Nice work. I am smoking on a similar project although on a much smaller scale. ;)

    Are either of these dishes worth fooling with?

    The building the dishes are on is an old car dealership which will be going under renovation soon, including a new roof. The large dish is a monster. All very solid, one piece and thick sided 8'2'' fiberglass. It must weigh 300 lbs. All the hardware is is great shape as well as the NPRM. Taking...

    Are either of these dishes worth fooling with?

    Thanks FaT, I'll be going to look at them on Fri. They are both on the same building and Google Earth shows a one story building. I have pretty much ruled out the larger of the two dishes but I do have access to a flat bed trailer. Your suggestions may very well come in handy in negotiating...

    Are either of these dishes worth fooling with?

    The pics were sent to me so I don't know any other details. Number two got my attention also. It is fairly close to me so I'll invest in a go look at it trip. Geez, where would I put it? Hmmmmm, maybe another tree could fall on the mountain side.............

    Are either of these dishes worth fooling with?

    Free, but I would have to remove NPRM and blocks from the roof and haul away.

    Is this a good deal?

    From Florence AL to Madisonville TN it looks like 250 road miles. Or you can try for this one. http://www.satelliteguys.us/c-band-satellite-discussion/258495-free-8-channel-master-dish-eldorado.html It would about 400 road miles from Florence AL

    For some of the old timers I know, it doesn't take much for them to go from swear by to swear at.

    Picked up some dishes today

    Nice score. Congrats. The support arm on the 84e doesn't seem to match the mold on the dish like the one on the smaller (75e?) dish. But if it works......... Were there any markings on the back of the larger one?

    Channel Master molded off set dish-odd shape?

    The owner would not give the dish up. The search for a suitable 84e replacement continues.

    Channel Master molded off set dish-odd shape?

    Gary, Thanks for the link. Very informative. I was especially interested in your comments regarding your comparison between a 1.0 and and a 84e. Since I was looking for a replacement for my 84e, which is on a motor already, I am wondering, why bother? Perhaps I should continue hunting for...

    Remember bug spray goes in your left pocket, PB Blaster in the right pocket. Please don't get confused, the results can be ugly.

    Channel Master molded off set dish-odd shape?

    Anole sir, I hope you are correct. I am pretty sure its not a 1.0 meter and since that only leaves a 1.2. I have been eyeballing some 1.2 images on the web trying to make it a 1.2. When I rally on my motorcycle, I carry two cameras. Just for you I am going to throw my back up camera in the...

    Channel Master molded off set dish-odd shape?

    I spotted an unusual shaped, to me anyway, Channel Master molded off set dish. It was on a free standing pipe about 12' high. I could get close enought to read the Channel Master sticker on the back side and it had the traditional three support legs with a hooded LNBF feed cover. It was pretty...
