Question: What does a "dish" comprise?

Triax TD78 solid steel dish pole-mountingAnswer: all our dishes come with an LNB support arm, 40mm LNB clamp bracket (except Sky minidishes) and a rear bracket (with elevation adjustment) that will either bolt directly to a wall (wall mount) or to a pole (pole mount) or a bracket suitable for both types of mounting, as specified in the description. Unless otherwise stated, "pole" refers to a 2" diameter steel pole (1.5" for Sky minidishes). Brackets to mount additional LNBs are available for some dishes but not for others.

Question: What is a "Pole Mount Dish"?

Answer: A Pole Mount dish normally has a bracket (with elevation adjustment) with two 2" U-bolts that will fit onto anything measuring up to 2" diameter (50mm). For example, you could fit it to our RAV20 wall tripod or to a ground stand, a combination mount or a pole concreted into the ground or mounted on the wall with T+K brackets. See the Hardware page for suitable mounts.

optional bracket and 0.5dB LNBsQuestion: What pole should I use?

Answer: Small dishes can usually be mounted on the supplied wall bracket or a 1.5" pole. A 2" diameter steel pole is required for dishes between 80cm and 110cm but note that all ChannelMaster dishes require a 3" mount. Our 43cm Minidishes come with a wall bracket. Some other minidishes can be mounted on a 1.5" diameter steel pole. Always use the shortest possible length of pole. (Never use an aluminium pole for a dish. It's unlikely to be strong enough).

LNB brackets are available for some of the dishes on this pageQuestion: Should I replace the old cable?

Answer: The typical life of unprotected cable outdoors is five years. By this time its attenuation factor has usually increased by a measurable amount. It will probably be "good enough" for several more years but the "rain margin" provided by a Sky minidish is so small that a slight reduction in signal can result in complete loss of programmes in heavy rain. Cable which is protected by a conduit or paint should last a lot longer.

Question: Are all dishes circular?

Answer: Most dishes are circular as viewed by the LNB. However, Sky dishes are oval (wider than high) and use a special Sky LNB to take advantage of this shape. Some dishes are oddly-shaped either for aesthetic reasons or disguise (the corners aren't actually used) or because they are designed to hold several LNBs.
