    in the "we FTA'ers are an interesting group" it was brought up that I promised pics of the dish farm.....well it changes all the time so there never is a current one :D

    Then I got to thinking...we have lots of pics of people's dish farms but they're scattered across the board. So if you want, please post pics of your dish setup/dish farm.

    Just the dish setups...dont need the cabling/switching/receivers posted
    it has to be YOUR dish setup (not some pic from the internet) ;)

    Here is mine
    1st pic is the 4 LNB dish I finished. 89/93/97/103
    2nd pic is closeup
    3rd & 4th is the Primestar at 107W for Starchoice sub and 2nd LNB for 119...note the FTA special...jerry rigged :D
    5th is Primestar at 74W and Dish300 at 110 (DIsh 811 in house)
    6th is Primestar at 74W
    7th is all on the deck :D
    8th is motorized with DBS/Standard/Universal on there
    9th is SC dish at 123W
    last is the two dishes on the roof. The SC dish I can get at to adjust. The motorized requires me to climb on roof to fix LNB's

    Once I get a couple parts, the C-Band dish (one of them) will go on the deck too :)

    so that's my dish farm

    Iceberg .... Pictures #5 and #7 fascinate me the most .

    3 dishes attached to a table , what's keeping the table from moving ?
    Are the legs tied down or table attached to railing?

    Just made me think of other things to keep an eye for while dish hunting , discarded tables :D.

    nope. Just the 70 pound sandbag holds it down. We've had some big winds but the table hasn't moved with those 3 dishes on there

    Iceberg, you truly are a madman! :) That's a LOT of dishes. But.... Where is the picture of your C-Band dish in the garage?

    brentb636 ... That's how it all starts. Add a little Miracle Grow, and you get a farm!

    Uh oh, why did you take it down? Are there problems with it? I just got one but haven't set it up yet.

    its in the front of the garage. The truck was in the way. When I pull the dish out for the weekend, I back the truck out and move the dish out in front of garage :)

    Once it gets warmer and the camaro can be pulled out of the garage, then I'll have room :)
