all the time i was searching for signal and couldn't get
the reason was the bracket i was using would not allow me to set evelvation (A) low enough because the pole the lnb sits was interfering (:cool: , so with a slight adjust using that well known delicate tool the hammer i corrected the fault:-thumbup

Could you not have moved the pivot bolt to back hole to lower the elevation?

Hi bronking
Looks like the dreaded "Funke" dish to me. Good dish,well made but a cr@p mounting system spoils it.
The good old "Birmingham Screwdriver" came in handy then!

Hi bronking
Had one many moons ago. Gave up in the end and fixed a back plate off of a smaller Gibertini dish onto it. No problems with setting up after that. That is why I stated it was a good dish, but the mounting system is cr@p.
