When I think back over the past 4 years I have found and acquired my best dishes to date by just watching the road side objects and then following up with a knock on the nearest door to find the present day owner. Yes I have been turned down on a few and those few still stand there still unused. I have eyes on a few more that soon I will knock on a door and ask about. Other dishes I have driven by for many years "suddenly one day" just were not there. I guess some went to the junk yard---game over. I should have knocked on a few more doors. In the end how else can we find large dishes at a price we are willing to spend? A few spares for parts and you are good for years ahead to make repairs if needed. I think soon I will stand up a few of my spare dishes just so I do not have to mow around them for another summer. I may just make some of them fixed in one position dishes. I see value there. So far no cows have been harmed because of my dish farming. When possible I remove the pole also.

I can understand that putting up a RayDish has you tired out. I remember putting mine up new; has to be much more work used. I remember making the mistake of not reading the manual when I bolted mine up. You are supposed to set the declination angle with the dish on the ground not after it is bolted to the yoke. I didn't. Mine was forever off by a degree. The yoke pieces are independent of each other are are metal castings. When I tried to get in that last degree I broke the yoke and had to get it TIG/MIG welded back together. Cost me a bottle of single malt.

Quite a story. Did you get the dishes away from the hurricane? Did you save them?

Yup,they made it fine.Was not as bad here as they thought it would be.Also i am pretty much surrounded by big trees blocking wind. North side has the biggest gap until the trees accross the road.Have a decent South view between the trees on the E & W sides.Dishes on east side get more West Sats & vice-versa....

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
