Hello Garyd
I got more pictures from the owner and it is wineguard and it is a 3.5 pole you nail it, the dish looks like it is in very good condition I think I am going to get it in couple of weeks.
Do you know what is the F/D ratio on this dish, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
Regards.

Yup, it looks just like the 10ft Winegard dish out beside my house! Bought mine new back in 1988 and it's still working great! I'd pay money to get that one if I had to.

Hello Lung Gunman
Thanks for your comments.
Found out today the dish is mine, pick it up in 2 weeks.
Do you get good KU reception on this type of dish?
Please let me know.
I am planing of disassemble to bring it home, I don't want to put the complete dish on top of a truck, not out here in California and on the freeway.
I noticed there is 4 coax cables going to the LNB I wonder whats in there.
Regards.
Tunder

That is a ribbon cable with two coax cables, one servo polarity control bundle and one sensor bundle.

Typically, one coax carried the C-band signals and the 2nd coax was either for KU or a spare.

IF that ribbon cable runs inside a pipe so that you can pull it out easily ... make sure you get it too. Could save a bit of money even if only the motor cable and servo wire are re-usable.

I don't believe I would fool with ribbon cable that is just buried in the ground though. Probably more trouble than it's worth.

My Winegard originally had a C/Ku Chapparal Corotor II, which I still have BTW but I'm not using. What I have on mine now is a "no longer available" DMX741 C/Ku combo LNBF. The closest thing to that now is a Titanium CK1S. If you use the Corotor II, or similar with a servo motor on it then you'll need an ASC1 to control it. I use those "cheap" dish controllers found on fleabay instead and use the C/Ku Combo LNBF with a 22hz switch. When I switched from the Corotor II to the combo C/Ku LNBF I didn't see any measureable difference between the two. Your mileage may vary though.

Ku reception is pretty decent as I get most of the stuff others get. Again though, your mileage may vary depending on how well your dish is tuned.

I see it has a Von Weise mover too, which is great!! Those things have a nylon lead screw nut in them that wears out over time but IIRC you can still get those from Von Weise if you need one. That or you could replace it with a brass one like I did a few years back.

Ennywho, that dish was a good find and I hope it works as well for you as mine has worked for me.

If its not to fair from your house, load and ship in once part. Other wise break into 2 parts.

2 people to do this job. Should take less then an hour.

Thanks for your reply Hank123, well the place where the dish is at is about 1.5 hrs. on the freeway and I have to come back on the freeway, I think I better just brake it down to the 4 panels.
I don't want to mess with the highway patrol.
Regards.

Hello Guys
I got my dish home, it was perfect, until I drop something and put a hole on the mesh, the hole is about 1 square inch. It only cost me 60 dollars and the owner gave me the receiver he was using, I don't know if is any good for any thing.
Here are some pictures, I hope I can fix the hole on the panel so it does not screw up the signal.
Regards
Tunder

Awesome restoration job on that dish. Looks like a brand new one. I might be a little late on the next comment, on the cable it might be RG59, we used to get chewed out if we left 59 in a house at TWC. They said it wont carry digital. Not sure how much truth there was to that. We ran all RG6, and the competition loved to put quad shield inside and out. I sometimes wish I would have ran RG6Q when I installed my dish but its been fine with the standard RG6. Anyhow great job bringing that dish back to life.

hello Gents
Got my dish up and running, scan a few sat's so far so good, is not fine tune yet, had to route the coax thru the middle of the dish, they are not long enough to go around the dish. I wonder if it affects the signal.
Anyways here are some pictures.
Regards.
Tunder.
