Buying my own dish. Which one do I need for my receivers
Posted 11 June 2012 - 11:28 AM
Which dish do I need to buy? I noticed there are several types. Probably for my case the smaller the better.
Also, as far as tripods go, are they all the same or are there specific ones I should look for?

Yes to both questions. Also, if you're HR23 has those little grey/black BBCs on the back of it, get rid of them.

You mentioned the issue of tripods. They are not all equal. You need the heavy duty one with a 2 inch post. You also need a patio or some other flat surface that has an unobstructed view of the southern hemisphere to use a tripod. And you will have to weight it down with sand bags or some other heavy weights since the dish can act as a sail during the Santa Ana winds. So, you need to take that into consideration as well.

Note with the second one you will need a few of them. Apt complexes can get upset if you attach things to their rails so I'd go with the sled one and just get some cinder blocks to hold it down.
You will need 2" OD pipe so hit a muffler shop and gets some stainless pipe from them.
