Can anyone tell me the exact length of the LNB arm on the original (white) Amstrad 60cm dish as supplied with the old SRX 100/200.
Help would be appreciated please..

You might have difficulty finding one to measure nowadays Don, most of them rusted away, but I have seen a few on walls.

If you want a replacement, I have several old homeless 60cm dishes.

Many thanks Rolf. Just thought I'd try to use the old dish for interest sake. Call it a bit of history. The LNB arm has gone missing. I have the tube to replace but not the measurement. I should probably turn my attention to something more worthwhile......it's the challenge!

Sorry Don, missed your reply, saw a couple up on walls whilst on my travels yesterday, but no chance to take a measurement. :)

The offer stands, I have several 60s that you can have the best of. Which receiver are you planning to use with it?

Hi Rolf

Thanks for your efforts! I think I have the answer which is 52 cms overall and (importantly) 42.6 cms between the mounting holes!

My analogue receiver is a Nokia 1800.

I think I'm sorted now but I am grateful for your offer of a 60 cm dish.

Thanks again..........
