Sorry to sound like a newb, I haven't messed with Dishnetwork Dishes in years.

Buddy has a grey Turbo HD dish, wants to purchase a second dish for camping, etc.

I assume here in South Texas he's looking at 110/119/129 sats.

What is the difference between the "black" turbo HD dishes and the grey ones?

Black ones are mesh dishes, other than that the only thing the makes the Turbo HD dish "Turbo HD" is the fancy logo painted on the dish. for sats 110/119/129, you'll be looking for a 1000.2 dish.

I believe he was talking about the black lettering "Turbo HD". He had already referred to it as grey.

Perforated is correct term. As it's still a solid dish w/ hole punched thru it. Mesh is light weight metal w/ holes in it on a frame.

Yep. One of my neighbors got one. I've seen them around at campgrounds as well.

Other than the color, exactly the same as the original 1000.4.

Thanks for the help all.

I told him to get a TurboHD 1000.2 dish. He found some online for around $60 with the support arms.
