i did remeber last night where another dish was closeby.
But it doesnt have a common mount on it. it looks like its at a fixed postion.
the mount kind of looks like it props the dish up.
its not something red-necked made, it looks professional.
it has a standard chaparal feedhorn.
the dish does not move, yet its newer (early 90's) looking
the dish sits a foot off the ground
the mount has a metal rod from the back of the dish that goes to a metal ring
heres a picture of the dish and mount

That's one of the Fortec C-band dishes. That one in the photo can NOT be motorized. It's worth having for a single fixed position.

They are NOW available with a polar mount upon request.

Nice thing about this 6-foot Fortec is that it comes in small pieces, therefore shipping costs on it are actually less than 1 meter dishes.

Iceberg has a couple of these.

thats not an exact photo of the dish, just the sort of mount it has.
there is no way to cut it and bolt in an acuator?
