Master Focus 90cm .Gigablue UHD Quad 4K on TM 2600 motor. *Tm 5402 HD M3, *Atemio Nemesis. *Not Used.
My Location

All the way from Amsterdam. Looks brand new, all there with single Phillips LNB and motor. I won't bother with the motor as the dish is 50cm and I do not want any more clutter in my den. Not sure yet if its a case of removing the motor and finding a way of fixing the dish at the correct position. Will only be using it on 28E for "bright eyes" to keep my Fibo 90 just for me. :)Pics later. looks like I need or to make one of these.http://www.satellite-calculations.com/Fibo/lock.jpg

Fibo Arrived.
Will not believe till see some pictures :rolleyes: Congratulations. Perhaps I can help you with original device - motor re-placer, that will make your dish stationary.

Many thanks. I really do not mind paying as it save me the hassle of getting something made but original is best. Of course I will gladly pay the postage. Best I pm you my address.

Got mine on a fixed bracket on 28E, I used an old Lenson Heath backplate on mine, then fixed it to the pole. Will take a photo tomorrow if it helps. Ahh just seen the last post...;)

As it is only a 55cm dish and will be fixed at 28E which is dead opposite the wall i am fixing it to, I am hoping to not bother with the pole mount and bolt the backplate to the wall. As the top house extension is timber framed I may be lucky and find a stud upright or coach bolt it to the ply behind the mesh and render. It would look neater. I always like photos, give me ideas.

TJ, when you get a chance, can you post a pic of the motor, would like to see it, and figure out what else it could drive!

Wait a minute! You will be second in line to see some pictures! :D Fibo motor is designed for this antenna. Of course, it can be used for something else, but that would not be proper way to use it.

Here are the photos. For a 55cm dish it is heavy, cast alloy so will last for ever. Few marks, mostly old sticky tape but looks as if has never been used. Not sure about the LNB, Maybe a later model would be better, perhaps a twin. The motor appears to be new but where it was already bolted to the dish it has damaged the plastic cog teeth, probably in transit to me. Good buy, I think so as it is something different from the usual and I believe I will get a very good signal on 28E.

Here is my 55cm Fibo on 28E. I used an old Lenson backplate with some L shaped brackets of an old Precision polar mount. The ali plate on top is to stop birds nesting in the space in the backplate. Excellent signal off 28E even in bad weather.P1010034.JPG P1010035.JPG

Looks nice and solid. I am hoping to do away with the pole and mount the backplate on a larger piece of s/s to make it easier to bolt to the wall and spread the load over a bigger area. I think I will go for the INVACOM TWF-031 'C120' 0.3dB Twin LNB as I have it on the other dish and it appears to be good.

Mine is the Invacom quad, works really well, you won't be disappointed with this dish.
