Hi,

Can the V-Box II (3.5 A / 80W) supply enough power to move an heavy duty 36 inch actuator that will be connected to a 3.05 meter aluminum dish.

Attached is the dish picture before installing the actuator, should I do any changes to the mount ?

Thanks,

Rittberg

Thanks,
How heavy is your dish?
Mine is about 100 Kg, two men are able to carry the dish.

deepbluesky,
I funded the dish in a gunk yard, I really don't know who is the manufacture. This dish was an IDF surplus, and was mainly used for transmitting.

In the attached image you can see how the dish was laying in the gunk yard.

Great, seems to be this here _http://www.geocities.com/TheTropics/Harbor/7883/ right ?

In any case i am very curious about your reception reports.

Here are some links that might also help you:
_http://www.tal-hetz.co.il/talsat/english/digital.asp
_http://www.satil.com/links_forums_israel.htm

For Cyprus i created this thread: http://www.satellites.co.uk/php-bin/forum/showthread.php?t=52956 . Still nobody has reacted but maybe later and for many satellites the conditions could be similar to your region so it might be worth to take a look at.
