Finished setting up my new dish tonight and the improvement is phenomenal as these pictures show. :)

The solution

Managed to get the Lemon LNB in person so saved £5 postage,

After dish was aligned and all tightened up I marked the position in permanant marker just in case and then sprayed bolts and joints with waxoyl.

Should be well protected their, behind low wall halfway up house protected from Westley winds, time will tell.

Looks nice and neat but watch that bracket in a wind they are not very strong.

I am intrigued by the apparent telephone sockets outside?:eek:

That is a network cable, when the roof was re done the managed to burn through it)(-red didn't fancy changing it all so I spliced in a new bit and put the joints in electrical boxes and sealed them all up.
