Flat piece of steel with holes drilled in the right places would work. Holes, or long slots in it would be even better, that way you can just tighten down bolts when you hit the right sat. I have one I'm doing that with now but it only goes to 91W. , lol (short piece of metal was all I had)

I would use a flat piece of steel. Back in the 80's I had an actuator arm that used a hand crank to move to the various satellites.

Hi, I would think that if you can use the chair to support the dish then you should be able to mark the spots to drill holes in a 2x4 and mount it with large (same dia as the motor used) lag bolts. That should make a quick and sturdy temp support for your dish. Later, DC

Yep... He had a pic of it, but I can't seem to find the thread. I would be worried about a kid coming along and taking the wagon away. This would probably happen during the recording of an important feed or backhaul ;) ...
