I will be moving our Directv Slimline 3 lnb dish to a ground/pole mount. I have found a 2" 5' mast online for about $30 shipped. Locally I can find a 1 5/8 galv. steel fence post in 6' length for $12. I would like to have the post in the ground at least 2' and I would fill the post with concrete (hole and post). I was thinking of wrapping the top part of the post with metal tape to make it fit the 2" that the dish requires. Anyone have any comments on this setup good or bad? THANK YOU for any advice!
