My Comwave Ku antenna didn't survive last winter. It got lose in a windstorm and is now shaped like a taco.

A friend gave me an old "Dish" dish from the 80's and I would like to put it in service for FTA.

Has anybody found a simple and elegant way to mount the 40mm universal LNBF to this ?

If that is a Dish 300, that arm is not supposed to be bent.
Also if it is a DISH 300, I never had much luck getting much FTA with one, too small.
Now they was an after market dish to replace the 300, that was the same but the reflector was larger, I did have luck with it.

The dish is 99cmh by 93cm wide. I thought the arm was bent as well but tucked under that bend is a hole for the lnbf cable and a nylon cable clip.
The coax connection at the lnbf is hidden inside the rectangular tubing. Its the same size as the comwave dish that got trashed and of a much heavier construction.
