That looks like the same dish that BJU ships with the receiver, but that sure isn't their logo on it.
I think ADTH sells a whole package to various sat broadcasters to resell to their subscribers, which includes the receiver, the dish, and the LNB - all made by ADTH.
Red tool box.
Red 5 gal bucket.
Red dog, with a red collar. -
Is the elevation knob stock, or custom?
Other pictures I'd seen of that dish, didn't suggest such a long elevation fine adjust screw - is it stock or a mod?
We should outfit all our dishes that way! - :up
Earlier versions of that dish didn't have ANY elevation adjustment screw. Adjusting elevation on those is an adventure.
$25 for all that - hard to beat.
BJU is ceasing their satellite transmissions next May - there may be a bunch of that equipment showing up cheap (assuming the owners don't just toss it out). There's at least a couple thousand of them in operation.
I got the same deal on craigslist as well. Receiver, dish and lnbf for $25. My dish is missing the elevation knob though. It had the brackets just not the knob itself. I guess the previous installer didn't install it our lost it. Is the original LNBF taht came with it any good? It says it is a P1705 ADTH single output ku lnbf. It says its outpout frequency is 950-1450 mhz. That doesnt seem normal for a standard lnbf.

There have been quite a few of these systems appearing on eBay. Many of the sellers clearly don't bother to figure out how much shipping costs before the listing closes.
It's too bad that only a fraction of these systems' sellers disclose in eBay listings that BJU will cease delivery of training by satellite in less than a year. Considering things, I would have expected better.
You lost me on that one - what difference does it make that BJU is ceasing their sat services if you're buying it as a FTA setup?
