Looks like it could do with a clean and a lick of paint, but if it was free or very cheap, it's a bloomin' bargain!!! :D

Plus, I love your brick-mount at the back.... :D

By the way, you need to waterproof your LNB connection or you'll end up with a wet receiver or short-circuiting the cable....

Was totally free! Gona use grey hammerite when i get a dry afternoon. i will maybe try the invacom quad on it to see if its better than the inverto lnb. Think the dish is about 15-20 years old tho....

I would say that your focal length could be out, as it might not be the correct feed.

You can buy that feed assembly from the satellite super store.

Get a meter on it and try moving the lnb in and out.;)

:-rofl2 at the brick mount. The dish has potential though and it would be nice to see it motorised once you get the feed sorted.

Good luck with it, I'm a bit jealous.
