I can get this dish for $70 delivered to my door including the NPRM. Wondering if this is a good deal and how better is this from the regular metal dish. And I believe that it has a weird lnb mount so would i have to use some duct tape like the original owner did in the picture?

Andyboy90 This is one of the best antennas available on the market. IMHO it is much better than any other made of tin antenna. 70 bucks is pretty adequate price for it. It maybe have some issues, but those are very minor. Read my post about this antenna here
When you get the dish, I can come back to give advice on LNB-holder.

I had to the read the whole thread because it was so interesting. I saw your modifications and they were impressive. I do not have the skills or resources to do any of that.

Nice dish you cannot go wrong with a channel Master dish. They are so easy to catch signal and setup unlike my previous metal dishes. I have a 6 foot channel master fiber Glass at my second home in the Caribbean and it works fine the problem is I also want to put a C band Lnb on there but cannot find and C band Lnb holder for it. The ones in RimaNTSS photo looks good but I am not that talented lol. Can't wait to see what you come with

So i finally got the dish and i have never seen anything like this before. The only thing i was worried about was the lnb holder but i found out that its 40mm because my maverick lnb fit perfectly as shown in pictures. The dish is in very good condition other than one scratch which wont affect performance (i think). I checked for warping and there is none. I am really excited to get it set up tomorrow. I noticed that base of the NPRM is wobbly but because its my first time dealing with one so i am not sure what to expect. I am thinking putting something heavy on it like concrete blocks would eliminate this issue. Now I need a way to figure out how to use a c band lnb on this dish. I will post more pictures when i clean it up and get in going.
