Echo1-2(148), G10R(123), Echo7(119), Echo8-10(110), Single Dish Solution

I have had several people ask me about how I have done this so I figured I would post some information about it. I have written this up and posted several pictures about this setup on my BLOG. You can find the link below. I basically took a DirecWay dish and stripped the old transceiver off of it and used some pipe strapping to mount a better LNBF on the center position for G10R. I then took some strip sheet metal from Lowe's and curved it to match the dish surface to mount the circular LNBFs and slowly tuned each bird in with great signal and quality.

Hey, you never know iceberg that 148 is pretty loud maybe with a little experimenting you could pull it in on that sucker - haha.

that's a SuperDuperDish if i ever saw one!

looks like you could throw a 129 on there as well. You think 61.5 is a wee bit too far in the other direction or doable?

HIghly unlikely due to a couple things
-15 elevation here in Minneapolis
-where my 119/123/129 dish is (the deck railing) I think the elevation would be too low and the house would block the signal. I use to have a dish at 148 on the roof but now it would block the T90 :D
