My roofs pitch is 30deg. I have Geosat 90cm and sg2100. My question is
from my location, I could go down as far 58deg Pas 9. Will the tube mount
that comes with Geosat, will it allow to go down to 12deg, so it does not
hit tube. or should I use a metal pipe and go maybe another foot above the
roof pitch.

yup! can now subscribe here for Sky, I see in some neighborhoods, people with
Sky, but most are on businesses with flat roofs.. a few on ground pipe.

You are better off installing a dedicated dish at 58w with no motor due to the dish elevation. In fact some family members of mine have SKY MEXICO themselves with a sub too from L.A and I personally installed a Fortec 80cm dish for them and they get between 75% - 85% signal most of the time.

Elevation was no problem using that Fortec Dish, which was about 15 approx.
Using a Motor that far east for us users in Socal is kinda pushing it a bit.
So I do recommend you to get a fixed dish parked at 58w permanently.

Unfortunately, I live in a Mobile Home Park. They have approved the Geosat 90cm dish, I also have my subbed dn 1000+. I seen original Sky dishes, performing well, but like you mentioned, they are fixed. What do you think, how cms is the Sky dish.
Looks about the size of Winegard 76cm. by the way I want to surf the wild feeds, going to purchase AZbox
