I spent quite I while restoring the mount for this but I have decided to try to raise funds for a mount for my Patriot which has been in the shed for too long. Included are: The dish face, the polar mount with all its new stainless fixings and the inclined tracking Linak jack. Not included are the 24" jack, the steampunk counterbalance bits and a ground stand/pole. If the buyer wants the 24" HD jack, a 3m 80mm dia x10mm thick ali pole, a controller with 5V for the optical feedback from inclined jack they are available separately. Pictures and dish history here:
Channel Master 1.8 Restoration
and when I used the mount with a 1.2m:
Ka with Prodelin/Viasat 1.2m Band B
The price is the total cost to me of all the parts £455 Preferably collected from Essex

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I have a Patriot cannister (expertlly) welded to a set of Ajak bracketry in the shed, it might even have cogs and motor.

Declination was fixed to this location so you might have trouble in some areas of Essex without a second motor.

Many thanks. It sounds interesting. Can you get to it to take any pics? I had big plans to make a full az-el mount for DSN & EME. The plans may be just too grand though!

Re. the Channel Master: I forgot to say the there are a couple of genuine CM/Andrews/whoever feeds, OMTs etc1.8m CM which are also available if a buyer is interested.
