Well it took a month or more but I got the Paraclipse dish up and running. It's done til next spring anyway....Needs paint. It was a $60.00 mess when I got it. I thought it was an 8footer nope it's a Eclipse 8.5 foot. I hope to get a new accuator in the spring and get this puppy to move. I did a comparison this dish against my 6 footer and there was some improvement. I currently have it aimed at 99W. First thing I noticed is I locked in everything on 99W without having to go outside and bump the dish for a few weak channels...KCWY etc...I got a good steady signal on all the 99w stuff...Here's the results with the Dynamic.
WHT1 52-58% VI-Puerto R Channels 53-58% My Tv 59-65%
Living Faith 44-49% KCHF 45-47% KCWY 31-35% ans WAPA 72-75%
Thanks to all for their help and advice in getting this going. Tonight the other LNB should arrive and I'll put it back on the six footer. Now I've got two buds and counting, Blind:)

Picture to follow....

Guess a 4x4 pressure treated post would last for awhile, I like it.

Turbo I knew someone would notice the post lol....Well it's the cheap way til spring. If the thing doesn't twist it may last longer.
I had the dish mounted once and noticed I was too close to one of the big pines trees....dug it up and moved it. It took three of us to drop that sucker in the hole assembled....twice... It works that fine to me...Blind

Nice!

It is far better to use a wood post than to have a fine dish sitting behind a shed ... not catching any microwaves. Hope it lasts the winter with no trouble!
