I have taken down down my late father's 1.2 metre dish and motor as attached( motor not used for years) that my mother doesn't want anymore and keen for me to take down the local tip.
Any suggestions on what to do with it before I bin it. Is it worth a try and flog on fleabay or do you think any member here would be interested?

This is a very good Prodelin dish you have there. Try placing an advert here, someone might be interested.

These dishes are fibre glass and are pretty much indestructible.

A shame to see such a dish taken down, I'm sure some peeps would like to get their hands on that one.

Posted ad in classified section for £80.00 all in, no sign of any interest at all so far!
I'll give it another week before I dismantle it out of mum's garden:(

There's always eBay. Might not go for as much as you want but better than binning it.

Have you got the large diameter mounting pole to go with it? It's not apparent from the photographs.

I'd take it myself excpet for the distance involved and possible spousal abuse...

I have uploaded photo of dish before it was taken down. It was mounted on a long pole with T&K brackets fastened to wall and patio to side of extension at back of house.
Decided that I am not gonna bin if I can't flog it. I have room at work for storage so will keep it there, might even make use of it myself in the future(wife is shortsighted, do you think she would able to tell difference between current Gibertini 85cm and this Big boy):rolleyes:

Do not despair.
Picked up a similar prodelin to yours a couple of weeks ago. Same polar mount, but slightly different reflector. Still excited about it.
Have not had time to test mine against a Channel Master (also plastic/fibreglass), but my bet is that it is essentially the same.
And since this one has a polar mount that rusts a bit less than the CM, I'd say be patient, I'm sure someone will come back to you.
And stick it on ebay too - wider audience, perhaps?

Just to add, i managed to sell 2 of my surplus dishes on Gumtree and a few other bits too, it's totally free to advertise on there also so might be worth a go :)
