Not that "glamorous" (unless you get a Merc, High-end Audi, or "similar"!) but, IMHO, quite essential if you want to "do things yourself" - I have run one of some sort for most of the time from when I ran a "C" reg MiniTraveller in the 1970's. With something like that, th if "it" doesn't fit in the back-end area, there's a good chance you can strap it on the roof rack.

ATM, it's a 2007 Skoda Octavia 16V 2l turbo diesel estate ("remapped" - so it goes like sh1t!) :)
BMW 320d here, over 240bhp (remapped aswell) Looking to get rid and go for an Estate, I can't even fold my rear seats down!

My dad had a Mini Clubman Estate at one point when I was little, the battery wire shorted against the chassis and it nearly went up in flames, then just before he sold it he said it was splitting away at the seams where they were crimped, so he ran some weld up it and sold it!

No worries man I feel your pain, currently saving up for a new house so I can buy a big dish

This 1.5m gibby just not doing it for me, I am hoping to join the big dish brigade shortly...

Plus I already have several 1.2 CM's, and a gibby gathering dust in the back of my house
Very thankful of this offer, fingers crossed it's still there and not a bird bath!
Nice collection you have there, when you say big, how big? Over 2m?

How far are you from Bangor North Wales?

I paid for this and never picked it up, planned to pick it up next time I was in Wales sometime in the summer



I spoke with the seller at length who informed me he had used it for C band, all of the arms, mount etc are galvanised
That, my friends, is a very nice dish.
As a pro item, all fittings and brackets are designed for the long-term.
You can do a lot worse than this.

Just don't think of motorising this without using a CM polar mount or similar (perhaps a large H2H?). This is heavy-duty stuff. :)

Bangor is 200 miles away :), plus I wouldn't fit a dish in my car, I really need to get an estate! You can't get bugger all in a saloon.
Please tell me it wasn't 99p LOL

I can use Anyvan though.
It's only a 1.2, I bought my Gibby back from Plymouth sat on four old duvets and tied down to the roof of our Corsa, no roof racks required.

I transported a couple of dishes on roof racks of my 407 (and 406 when I had that) - up to 1.5m Gibertini! It was a slow and precarious drive but it worked. The 1.2m Channel Masters sit pretty well on the roof but 1.5m is a little scary!

Thank you, appreciated and same goes for you.
Hopefully won't be too long before they abolish the toll on that bridge!

Just picked up another dish, Thank you Captain Jack & Family...

A lovely 1.2m Channel Master to be ground mounted, will be able to swap over LNB's to dabble with a bit of C Band/Ku and also some Amateur 10GHz band and others...

Managed to get in on the roof of my car, was surprisingly easy and safer than I anticipated! Will order a roof rack or trailer, was going to sell it and buy and estate but think those other options might be better.

Going to give the 36v actuator an overhaul, re-paint it and re-lube and get that all set up too, I'll add that to this thread or create another.
