Just happened to look outside and saw this... It's actually a Channelmaster 1.2m pointed at 103w :)

Do you mean this one? It does not look like Channel Master antenna to me. Perhaps Prodelin.

Pretty sure it says Channel Master on the back... I actually have two of them, identical. I switched out the single polarity LNBs for dual (dual polarity) Inverto Black LNBs.

I think you are wrong about that. I have two of those and the Channel Master brand is embossed on the back. Those are old PrimeStar dishes and they are great for Ku reception.

A PrimeStar dish made by CM has many differences to that picture. The LNB arms and holder are different. The CM dish has a 7" square bolt pattern holding the dish to the mount. A prodelin has a larger bolt pattern.

Yes I can post a picture once it warms up a bit (-30 camera won't likely work). This is a very old dish though, but does look like the second pic in Magic's post above. The two I have came from a local broadcast company.
Edit, braved the cold and used the smartphone. Can't read the model plate though it's too weathered or is gone... so I guess we can call it what ever we want. :)
Re-loaded the posts above missed the center picture for some reason, it obviously looks like the 3rd image above.
