paying attention to gravity and knowing a little bit of physics will tell you the dish will swing towards its heaviest side. :right on:

In all seriousness, removing the bottom nuts attached to the dish and swing the dish forward then removing the top bolt(s) seems to be the easiest way. But good tip for those who needs to do this the first time.

I actually thought the common procedure was that once the LNB and all coax cables were removed from the ODU. To first loosen the collar on the Az-El mount which secures the entire dish assembly (i.e. Az-El mount, LNB support arm, and reflector) to the mast so that it swings freely in the horizontal or azimuth plain. Then lift the entire assembly mentioned previously, off the mast and lower it down to the ground by whatever means necessary. Like maybe tying a rope to it for lowering before lifting it off the mast.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

I have a feeling that's exactly what my roofers did and the reason that I needed a new dish when the relocate was done the next day.
