I have an AT9 that needs to be mounted on the West side of my house (it is the only place that can see all the sats). Now, it looks like I can't mount it anywhere but the south side unless I get the mast above the roof line. I mean, I think the AT9 dish is too wide to mount on a west wall and turn 90* to the south. Am I wrong or does the standard mast bring the dish far enough from the wall to turn it 90*. It looks like you only have about 45* of play because the mast is too close to the wall.

As far as I can tell, the mast would have to project out 16" to be able to turn the dish sideways. The mast only gets it out 11"

Kinda dumb mast design. You should be able to rotate the dish around 360* for most flexibility. The way they design this thing, you can only mount it on a south wall or on a north/west/east soffit. But not a north/west/east wall.

Thinker - do you have the actual dish that you are measuring from? I have the same problem and need to know if I can rotate the dish almost 85 degrees on a west wall. If not and I have to get above the roofline, do you know the distance from the top of the mounting foot to the bottom of the dish (to allow clearance around my gutters)?
