A few weeks ago I put up a 1.2 meter Antenna with a 2100 h2h motor.
It works fine except for by the dish being so big I had to
used a longer pipe now the dish shakes to easy.

Anyone knows of any kind of supports I could attach to the pole
To keep it from shaking so much?

i put my post in a 6" sonotube full of concrete, keeping enough space to let the dish drop all the way down without hitting the concrete
looks ugly but its been rock solid in 70mph winds

I built my mount from 1-1/4" pipe and a 45° elbow. Used a DTV dish foot and support arms.

I think I have found a solution using guy wire clamps and with an outdoor lightning kit.

Let me know how using the wire goes, I don't have a 120 dish at the moment but thinking of getting one and realized that at the height my pole is at present it would have serious wobble.

I thought about reducing the length of the pole?

I remember trying mine which has a longer arm (Horn) than his lnb and it didn't make any different in terms of the reception perhaps his is the same.

It looks like he could move it 1cm forward if he wanted to (towards the dish)

I'm interested to know what kind of setup he has with the 4 outputs?

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!
