Would it be safe to replace a Dish 500 with a Dish 1000.4 using the same mounting pole and footplate?

As you may know, the 1000.4 uses struts to stabilize the dish. I suppose that if the 500 mast diameter is the same, it could work, using the supplied struts. I think that the 1000.4 mast is somewhat longer.

The 1000.4 is larger and heaver then a 500
That said if it is in an area sheltered from the wind and propperly mounted in the first place (six lag bolts ect.) then you could re-use the mast
The .4 mast is longer to allow for wall mounting at 90 degree angels

I installed my 1000.4 sat dish on the same pole in the ground I had my 1000.2 sat dish on and the dish 500 before. I don't use the struts at all. It works just fine with great signals:

72.7 sat - between 60 - 70
77 sat - between 50 - 56
61.5 sat - between 45 - 70

Too many answers here that create more questions.. The simple answer is YES, the mast will work with no problem.

Yes..Both will fit. All Dish network antennas use the 1.66" outside diameter mast. Put the 500 dish right on there. No worries.

You can use the 1K4 with the 500 mast and 500 footplate.

You can not use the 1K4 mast with the 500 footplate, it will scrap on the plate.
