Well I got HD installed yesterday and WOW!! Very impressed.


I assumed the new dish would replace the old one on the same pole in the ground but the new 5LNB dish requires a larger diameter pole. This was a problem for me since my old pole was in the only spot that concealed it from view ( wife issue) and at the same time provided the proper line of sight. My pole is cemented in the ground also.

It apperaed the only solution was to dig up the old poll and install the new one. Not good.

We came up with a solution. Take piece of 1-1/2 inch PVC pipe and cut it in half lenghtwise to use as a shim. Turns out the two haves are a perfect fit around the old pole to bring it up to the proper size for the new dish clamp.

Old pole is 1 1/2 in OD the new one is 2 in OD
