A local retailer put this dish in, I think about 10 years ago. I don't remember how long the pole was, but as you can see there's 4 feet above ground, so I'm sure there's no more than 2 feet underground, if it's even a 6-foot pole and not 5 feet. More to the point, the ground was very rocky, so he barely dug a hole wide enough for the pole and the J-mount foot he put on it to keep it from turning. I think he barely even used half a bag of cement. As a result, the pole has been leaning more and more over the years. When I start to lose signal I adjust the dish a bit. but it's now leaning in two dimensions, the hardware is getting rusty, and one bolt has even broken off somehow. I wish I had raised hell about it when it was done so I didn't have to pay to get it fixed later, but it seemed to be holding at the time. I'd like to get this fixed up properly before winter, because I don't know if it's going to survive another winter, and I really don't want to be adjusting it in the middle of winter.
