Hello Group!

I'm a new member, in search of some info...

I recently upgraded to a new Terk S25 oval triple LNB dish, and installed it on my roof in the same spot as my old dish.

I was able to get a very strong signal on the regular satellites, and the 110 degree satellite I got a passable signal (maybe 60 %, enough to lock). Not knowing what the norm was, I went with it.

Well, now that the trees are budding, I find that the new satellite location is obstructed, and I will have to move the dish. The only possible location will be a ground mount.

My questions are:

1) Does anyone know where to find ground mount hardware? I know I need a 2 inch pipe. I expect I will have to put a footer in for it, but would prefer a less permanant mount.

2) Does anyone also know where the new mpeg4 satellites will be in the sky? I want to pick a spot where any new dish that I will require will also have a view of the new satellites.

Thanks a lot!

You mean 99, 101, and 103 degrees, right?

Thanks!
