Looks a lot like a unimesh, but i might be wrong. I have 2 10' unimeshes and they both work well.

Hard for me to make out much detail with that photo, Mando. Possibly a Unimesh or Channel Master? I'm guessing a 10 footer?

If it is 10ft or more and not warped... it should be a good'un for C Band. Size of mesh openings will determine whether it is also good for KU.

It isn't a Janeil Darkstar.... which is the #1 dish everyone says to avoid. :)

Definitely appears to be a quadpanel dish. Not a Uni-Mesh, the LNB supports are in the wrong place for Uni-Mesh. Looks to be a Channel Master or Winegard quadpanel. Could tell more by seeing if the middle mesh support ring is round or square.

I brightened it up a little to see the detail, and I concur with Magic Static, it looks a lot like a Channel Master to me. If so, it's most likely a really nice dish.

I know this guy is still in business http://www.satellitedish.com/page-6.htm and he claim s a 10' mesh dish shipped is $1200 shipped to the midwest. dont know if it was the t-lock dish or the "regular dish". so all those 10' we save for free are worth it. I called looking for replacement mesh, which he didnt have.

We should email that Orbitcommunications guy. That link that you made is NO LONGER valid. But, it still comes up on searches. He has no links to that page on his main site. Those dishes and prices are long gone!
Okay,,, I will delete that one from my list. thanks

Is there anywhere in the USA to buy a new 10' mesh?

Orbit Communications has a 11.7 foot Orbitron with a polar mount for $700 + shipping. Not bad since there's no real competition these days for BUDs. Orbit also has Paraclipse antennas, which used to be a good quality dish. Haven't used one of those in years, but I'd bet they're still excellent dishes.

DH Satellite has a decent price on a spun aluminum 9 footer they claim is as good as a 10 footer due to the accuracy of their spinning process. I wouldn't doubt that after selling a lot of spun dishes over the 30 years we were in the business. If you stay with a movable dish, then it's probably worth it, but if you are doing multiple installs to avoid having to move the dish, then you may not want to spend that much.

The spun aluminum would definitely interest me. I would say we need to stick to 10 feet or bigger with 16 apsk signals coming.
