Came shipped from Canada via Purolator. Probably Tek2000? I don't really know much about them. They accepted a lower offer, and I used a 15% coupon active that day, so it came out to about $750 shipped. Arrived pretty fast too, about a week! Packed well, all the fins seem to be in good shape.
I would hope that they improved their instructions by now. But you might find this thread of interest in case they haven't: Dish Specs, Trust But Verify!
When going together you want to do a string test, just to be sure. While you are doing it, measure the TRUE reflective diameter and the depth from the cross strings to the center of the dish. Write them down and keep track of them. That way, if you do have to figure the focal length and f/d you have what you need. Hopefully, they have things where you don't end up having to do that.
That's great info, thanks! I'll definitely do the string test.
The included instructions are comically bad. They do mention something about possible rod misalignment and having to move them, but the instructions are a one-sided sheet of paper that points you to a thread on tvrosat for installation help haha.
Follow the guide on the TVRO forum and you’ll be glad you did. Also look at the reviews that I did and others on those dishes for pointers on what worked and what didn’t. You can learn from our experiences.
