Off topic.... I'd love to have one of those, anyone know where you can get them without $100 for the dish, $100 for the mount, and $100 for the LNB?
Yea, use a C clamp to clamp a SWM3LNB to a 1M or 1.2M FTA dish Solid 100's

Trying to get HD from *D in Honolulu- will need the 1.2Meter dish- Does this dish come under FCC protective legislation that limits the restrictions that can be placed on satellite dishes by homeowner associations or is it too big or otherwise ineligible? thanks
The rule applies to video antennas including direct-to-home satellite dishes that are less than one meter (39.37") in diameter (or of any size in Alaska), TV antennas, and wireless cable antennas.
So not covered in HI. Have you talked with Dish or DirecTV? Do you even need a 1.2M dish?

i did read the FCC site which shows OTARD applies only to
dish up to 1 meter or less ( except alaska)-
checking tomorrow with local sat installer who does both *D & *E to see specifically what required here in HI for HD w prem/sports.
Few neighbors have 1.2 meter dishes installed w/o homeowner assoc approval- guess they'll be issues with HOA if HD service is avail from *D with smaller 1 meter dish-

reading OTARD it seems the 1.2 meter isn't covered here so it could be restricted - interesting-
