Have ordered the H20 receiver from DirecTV. They will install the new AT9 antenna next week. The mounting post rail on my deck is 5 inches wide. Made up of one 4X4 post plus a 2X4 post nail together. I needed that width for the older 3 LNB antenna mounting pad bolt holes to fit. My question is, will the current 5 inch width be enough for the new AT9 antenna bolt holes. Plus, what about supporting brace foot print?
Should I lag bolt another 4X4 or 2X4 to the existing 5 inch width?
Any information will be appreciated.

Please note that I posted this request in another thread by mistake. Sorry.

Thanks Proc!
Just the info I was looking for. Can see by looking at pictures that adding another 4X4 would not leave some of the bolt holes hanging out in mid-air.
