Looking to get started in FTA and found an 8' mesh dish on my local craigslist. Can anyone tell if this would be a good dish to start out with or should I keep poking around for something better?

Think I may have that same dish but I'm not sure who made it, and I don't have a mount for mine.

It would take some pretty serious hail to dent it if it's the same, it's made of pretty heavy perforated (aluminum I believe), much stouter stuff than your typical mesh dish.

Mine appears to be pretty well made, the buttonhook looks like it would be pretty stable, but you could guy it off if it needed a little help.

If you do decide to get it please post some pics and whatever info you discover about it, thanks. :)

I believe it's a Bentley...worked on a few of them....

I forgot to add they are a very good dish for a mesh...the buttonhook is stout...
