@John @scopus how did you mount the cctv camera?

Above the dish looking down towards the lnb’s or on the lnb boom arm looking up towards the lnb’s?


Please, many thanks.

Ok, both cameras used on 2.2 mtr & 1.2 Gibby are 1080p TVI type cameras using the coax cables installed years ago. The 2.2mtr one uses a micro pinhole type and is housed in a waterproof box behind the reflector and just needed a 1/4" hole in the reflector for the lens to see through, and the Gibby one is a micro ball type. Really really useful additions.

The one I have ordered is similar to the white one in your photos.

Looks like a couple of zip clips should hold it on the boom arm unless I can find something more suitable.

Thanks for the photos as this has really helped me out:Y

Today I made the lnb cables up for fitting on the dish tomorrow.

Also run the motor cable plus camera cable across the garden in some conduit. I still need to seal the ends on the conduit.

Hopefully I will get the jack wired tomorrow and the last couple of f-plugs will get fitted.

Then I shall be able to check I have it on arc or not.

Connected the lnb’s up to the diseqc 1.1 switch today, my Dr hd d15 is now my positioner for the lnb Changer.

I didn’t get the chance to connect the jack up today, so that will be a job for tomorrow.

The ku lnb is a twin output Invacom 1 side goes to the motor of the lnb changer the other side goes the the other feed in through the diseqc switch.

My 1.5 dish is giving a signal on 1°W for tonight. I might try c-band if the bbc feed is still live @John @scopus or @Feedsat_DXer could you check please?

TJ had a Stab rotor - with an internal fault, but under the suppliers warranty.
