    Today, I made huge progress with my newly acquired dish...It was definitely a learning experience with figuring out how the panels go together and then how they mount to the mounting ring, and also doing this by myself with a good breeze of 6-10mph here today! the position I have the dish in now will stay that way until I get my new LNB, this way it will be easier for me to install the quad arms and the LNB, super excited with the progress today and can't wait to finish it up and start scanning the sky! 4-11-19 003.jpg 4-11-19 004.jpg

    Have you stringed it yet, to make sure it's proper? IF not, you need to do so and get it right before locking it all down tight.

    Have ordered my new LNB from Titanium....should be here Friday or Saturday next week....will do the string test this next week to insure the dish is proper...have no doubt it is since Nick had it in operation at his prior house with no issues.

    Looks just like my first dish.
    I am envious.
