    Mounting a dish directly onto vinyl siding? Really?

    I was thinking the same thing. This is terrible work, nothing to be proud of in the least bit. Please don't post anymore. lol

    On second thought this is the shame thread so those definitely qualify to be here.

    Absolutely not! Also the pic of the 2 dish setup stacked on top of each other there is no way the mast is in a stud at least on one of them. Studs are 16-24 inches apart and those mast are not lined up so one is not in stud. Most likely neither one is in stud.

    Not saying you're wrong, but what is common practice isn't always executed properly by framers. I've had studs that no two consecutive studs were 16" on center (even though the plans called for 16" on center). And I know these pictures aren't in FL, but we have some engineers who will spec 12" on center on some walls based on wind-borne debris region or the the load on the wall.

    Many old houses aren't close to 16-24" on center.

    love to know which contractor you work for because I was an employee up until 3 months ago and that is definitely NOT an approved mount. Installers obviously still do it just like they climb on roofs but that doesn't mean it's approved.

    Found that gem on a service call, all apart of the standard professional install

    pure lazyness.. the mount has obviously been there for years, screws are coming out, mount is not secure at all, tech did not even bother trying to make it secure. Not sure what is going on with the arms and why they are there... barrels upon barrels...
    only got an hour of time to fix this job

    That job looks like it was done by a legacy ATT tech who is now trained on DTV. The connectors in the pic are the ones they use.
