Normally you can use a 2 inch U-bolt through the flat arm thing if it is like the type below. That is what I have done.

The modern dish bracket will fit a scaffold pole, yours must be one of the older ones.

There is a bracket made for the older dish, but now sure that there are many who sell it.

Eight nut clamp with a standard mini-dish L shape arm should do it if it's the older first generation dish :D

Would that be the same thing as a Shelley clamp?

I hate those things, but I guess that they have their uses. :)

there should be on the minidish a longish bracket on the back to bolt to a 2inch pole

see here how i have mine which now has a zone 2 minidish on it with no problems

and yes i know my setup is scruffy but its changing soon:)

Wod, OP said he had an early minidish of which only fits a 1.25 inch mast.

P.S & off subject: change over the TD to a PENTA see my post earlier and also you asked for results on TW, it's there mate :)

might as well buy another minidish then as they are so cheap and get a zone 2 one for better signal

You could of course purchase a new Z1 dish and use a 2 inch U bolt as described above :D
