I tried to PM you this question but wasn't allowed... So I'll take the liberty to hijack :-hijack your thread...

I see you have a 24" actuator in your 1.2m channel master...
Did you use a CM polarmount? Or a home made adaption of a bigger dish polarmount?
Any pictures?

Sorry for question..

No trouble, my friend.... Yes, I used a Channel Master 1.2 Polar Mount. I purchased it along with the dish...

hope this helps:)

Cool,

Thought it was some interesting adaption... I'm still curious about the actuator... shouldn't 18" or even 12" be enough for that size of dish?

Possibly but I wanted to make sure I got from east horizon (as far as possible) and also west to it's limit...

hence 55e to 58w! altho it can move further these are all I can get without adding another small actuator for the incline...

:-Welcome1

Like the Avatar - the DAD feeds were known to show some top class TV well before it officially reached these shores - is that still the case?

Just to show I read your posts, your details state 62E to 58W yet your last post says 55E to 58W - but what's a few degrees amongst friends :-righton

Keep posting anything interesting you find while scanning the skies.

:-Welcome1

glad you like the avatar... check out dad 4 after 1am and watch great NBC stuff although these dad frequencies often go dead or change a lot, it's great when we have it! new series of Joey, Will & Grace, The Apprentice usa etc..

my dish can move to around 70e and 65w but I can only view channels at 55e & 58w...

sorry for the misinfo...

also I dont know if you know CBS news is also on 16e nightly @ 11190H 5632 3/4

I tried this this morning. Couldn't find it with my SS2/Progdvb, but my Comag SL65 has found it at 92% signal strength and 67% quality. I've been trying to find the thread I was looking at earlier, which talked about this, but I can't. This is using a Sky region 2 dish, with a Moteck motor. Currently called DAD-2, showing NBC news.
