Can i put this on a pole next to my house and be able to move this dish from 135 west to 3 west..In fact 58 west -3 west has ZERO KU for us to recieve except 30 west.So the focus would be 135-61 west  i would need a horz/horz for this purpose.NO ROOM ON MY ROOF ecept if i attach the dish to my chimney..SUGGESTIONS PLEASE .[smile]

Do a site survey. Only you know your LOS. Use dish pointer site or app. I would think near any motor or actuator easy capable 65w- 135w question is do you have line of site in proposed location. Nobody can recommend motor without know size and weight of ku dish you choose.

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!
