I had it on the house an when it was really windy it nearly ripped half the house down, so i took it down and made that

Didnt wanna put it on the garage cus there's a tree that would have blocked most the easternly sats

Where it is there i can get 30w to 19e

Need to move it a bit to the left to get 28e

Interesting to know what it's like in high winds though, doesn't look like the casters are lockable.

Sounds good, I guess that a sandbag could be used for further stability in extreme weather.

Its really easy, the front of the base near enough lines up with the line of the flags

Only takes a min or two

LOL, superb m8. I'll post my poor-man's equivalent when I get a chance. It's remarkably (err...) similar! O-no

OK, I suppose I should put these in a sep. thread. Maybe I'll move them all later but...

This is how NOT to do it folks :D

Works though, and stands up in 60mph winds without moving one little bit!
It's an 'upgrade' to my motocross tyre mount :-rofl2

Wonder where you got that idea from?? ;) My 80cm dish (19E) on the old car tyre survives all but the biggest storms - although it will be properly mounted at some point this year.
