Here's the new fortec star 90cm mounted and motorised :lol::smile:
heres my two motorised 1m dishes, one does 45 to 45 other does 42 to 30 degrees.the fixed dish is spare i use this for testing/playing.
nice pictures, you might want to change that feedhorn to an andrews ku band feedhorn as that works very well on the gibertini dishes
Thanks for the info, the feed horn is supposed to be matched to the gibbi dish ( supplied by the gibbi dealer) it has improved some marginal channels for me. i used to loose mnbc 26E in rain, but now i dont. :smile:
Nice set up. But you sure that scaffold pole is long enough
The pole is not long enough. my fault !! i cut it. as it stands it clears the ridge tile but recently i went to put a twin lnb on it which being slightly longer hits! when it warms up im going to jack the pole up.ive found with this hobby that nothing stays the same for long u always want a bigger dish or better lnb planning is every thing !
Hi Andie V6, like the wall bracket where did you get it, was it difficult to get plumb for the motor, Does that fence that is causing the shadow effect reception or is it just because the sun is low?
Well here's my setup, the main dish is a 1m motorised dish which can "see" from 53.0 East to 18.0 West. The second dish is in the process of being installed and will probably be pointed at 34.5 West, or I might even motorise it.
Looks a nice set up. If you can, cut off the ends of the dish U clamps, they often get in the way of the cables exiting the motor, well done
Well done. :righton:
For another £40 I would be tempted to motorize the second dish. To have installed 2 dishes (due to obstructions), you are obviously of the same mind as me. You want to be able to receive everything that you can. Even if there's nothing on worth watching. :grin:
You're absolutely right! If it's there I wanna receive it!:lol:
I finally got round to motorizing the second dish:smile: Got the motor from Maplin, a bargain at £37.49 plus a voucher for 3 quid made it £34.49. I even managed to set it up myself with a little help from DishPointer.com :shocked:
Yep, that is a good price for a motor, it is a Moteck clone I believe.:smile:
Just found this forum, thought you may be interewsted in my dish farm!
Please tell us what we are looking at, dishes, reception etc. Looks good well done.
Nice pics. Yes a bit of detail to go with 'em would be nice.
Makes a change from fairies - or do they live behind the dishes? :grin:
