I tried something similar once.
I can see that you may indeed get ahead of me mounting the OA-1600.Not bad at all.... 23,5*E in the middle and 9*E on the edge. And I already decided how to modify this dish. Everithing red-crossed will be removed and additional bar (circled blue) will be added.
"...left the garage flooded from the sprinklers. It also left a man's decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head. A head which at this time has no name..."
They where probably there for a reason.Originally antenna had 2 support struts . By now I do not feel need for them. But, it is quiet easy to make them (red).
Very nice, but what I don't understand is: All your LNBs seem to havin roughly the same alignment.Spent some time today working on this dish. Firstly moved it couple of meters West thinking that neighbor's house will not be on the way to birds, I was wrong.... it does not allow to get decent signal from 45*E and 42*E also partially obstructed. But on other satellites got good results. Unfortunately do not have free 1/10 Diseqc, so if I need to switch to another satellite I go out and reconnect F-connector. Will probably do tests satellites one by one. I also see that there is a potential to install 2 additional.... no, I will not do that.
Not really.... Central LNB is more down and forward in such a way that distance from each LNB's focal point has same distance to it's own "Le point G" on the surface of the dish. In Post #7 I was trying to show (green solid line) all points G connected. Perhaps I was wrong... but I can check that drawing real line on antenna by connecting all real points G. Secondly, edgy LNBs are higher than central LNB, that is because Clarke-belt is not straight but curved from antenna point of view.All your LNBs seem to havin roughly the same alignment.
