    Get it anyway! It's not easy to find a dish this good, in this good of shape, for a good price. Maybe you have a buddy that'll store it for a while.

    I agree with Primestar and Raydio, that's a great dish and it appear to be in great shape, plus comes with a collection of related toys. By all means, if you can find a way to store it, even outside, get it!

    I have the same dish and am very happy with it.

    Chewie, the seller says the dish breaks down into 8 panels. You wouldn't happen to know how big each panel is, would you? I'm guessing about 5 feet across (since combined they're 10 feet across)?

    Not so, That dish is a quad panel. 4 sections that stack together nicely.

    I never had that exact dish, BUT, I once owned TWO Winegard Pinnacle's which are 10ft dishes, but very deep compared to the Quadstar. Look at this post here. Both of them are loaded in this 4.5ft x 9ft Harbor Freight trailer. You should be able to stack a single dish inside a van: Kijiji, eBay, and Craigslist dishes for you to take a look at

    IF you win that dish and go to pick it up and break it down, take a black permanent marker with you. Mark EVERY panel facing edge with a matching number, and which side is UP/DOWN/East/West! Mark it well, as it's best to put it back together exactly the way it was originally!

    Pinnacles on the other hand do break into 8 sections.

    Hello CN
    I don't think so, my dish is only 4 panels, and if you look at the dish ribs the thicker ones that is where the panels join together, so there is only 4 panels, the panels are about 5 feet.

    if I remember correctly, the panels' larger dimension was 63 inches. I will go check on mine and let you know

    Four dish panels + four LNB support arms = 8 pieces!

    Well, it ended a bit ago with no bids. Hopefully he'll put it up again and not trash it. Or CN buys it on the side.

    Wow, another one right in my back yard. Olathe is a half hour from here. Is this a message from God? :D

    PS- my parents had that very same VCII receiver. Last time I saw it was 1998.
