I want to replace the lnb arms for a ten foot mesh dish. Is there a way to calculate the length of the arms.

So, you do not have the old support arms so you could duplicate them?

You need to determine the focal length of your dish, if you know what brand/model it is that info could probably be found on the 'net or here, if not you need to do some calculations.

I have seen that formula posted on the forums, don't have it saved, but some or all of the info you will need eventually, can be found here:

Footprints by Dish Size - Adjusting the Polar Mount for Prime Focus Antenna - C/Ku-Band Satellite Systems - Tuning, Tracking, Azimuth, Elevation, Declination Angles, F/D Ratio, Focal Distance, Inclinometer, LNB/Feedhorn Assembly, Actuator Assembly, C

That whole site is a wealth of BUD info.
