Looks similar to one my lists of a few(??) yrs ago.
Just don't rush to get it all up and running at once. Get the BUD operational then you'll have something to watch as the cement cures around the Ku dish pole. Then add the switch and Ku and get it going.

Not 100% comfortable with your Ku dish.
- height of LNBF looks questionable
- pole diameter looks too small
- the round feedhorn isn't optimal on an elliptical dish

Let us know how well it works out.

The pole is too small for the dish but I just set the dish on it for a pic. The pole is to mount the motor the dish will be on the motor but I don't have the motor yet, it is on its way. I have used a LNB just like this on a 84e PS dish back about 7 years ago and it worked excellent?? It is fully adjustable but I have not adjusted it yet, no receiver to test. If I remember I didn't need to adjust anything but the skew up and down was spot on. Guess I will see??
