very nice! That takes me back. I used to install big dishes but in the 80's & 90's.
We always used a lot more concrete than we ever needed & never had a complaint about the work.

My dad was a civil engineer built highways in Pennsylvania. Liked to pour concrete. I learned that concrete needs 18days to set fully. Also needs to be kept cool and moist. So he covered everything in burlap which he kept watered. I never did that with my dish posts but I did wait 3 or 4 days before bolting on a dish. My RayDx 10 has been up for 32 years. Never a problem. Well with the concrete anyway.

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!
