My daughter sent me a text last night with a photo.

"Hey dad a guy is throwing out a bunch of dishes. Here's a pic."
So I went and picked the largest one. The scrap metal dealers can grab the rest.

Last year a tree knocked down my 87W dish. So I put this new one up today. Got my CNN and LPBS back again !!!

It measures 31 inches x 35 inches.

That dish is like nothing i have ever seen before.

What is the make/model?

Would love to see some pics of it installed and working.

Glad you got your CNN and LPBS back tc.

I think I may have the same dish that I am getting rid of. Not that it doesn't work, quite the contrary, it works very well, was my first small dish C Band experiment, used to pick up LESEA with it. Does yours have this kind of elevation adjustment? About 7 or 8 years ago, I saw this on the back of a roofers truck. Chased the driver down and picked it up for $20

It had some sort of tubular tripod but NOT a adjusting device like yours. I may put up a few pictures now that it is installed. I'm using my SPITFIRE LNB , and not the one that came with it. It is on a single pole now as was my 18X24 dish.
