Am in west london and I want to find a sat shop close to me that sells satellite poles in order to mount my dish. Have looked on the net but to no avail. I don't wanna pay for postage either. Anyone knows of a place that sells poles?

I metre length of scaffolding or any 1metre / 50mm diameter piece of stainless steel/galvanised piping / pole with a minimum thickness of 2mm will do.

It appears that i need a 6cm thick pole which should have a square shaped base so that i can drill it on the flagstones. Been looking all over the net but nothing!

Phone SCCI in Cheshunt, tell them you want a 2" by 36" Ground mount. They may be able to deliver as well.

PS. Why specifically a 6cm diameter?

I can't find a place to get a pole. How do you call the stores that make these things? Stick to pieces of metal together. There must be somewhere in London. I want it to be about 80cm tall and 6cm thick.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Do you mean a fabricating shop or light engineering workshop?

Phone a steel stockholder and ask for tube using mm e.g. od (outside diameter) = 60mm, 1mm thick and 1000mm long.

Try a local one to you:

Yes a ligh engineering shop where you can order what you want.

Anyone else who has t90 wave frontier here? From where you got the ground pole?

I phoned many installers but none is willing to sell a pole to me unless i get them to do the job for me.

I'll try a local steel stockholder.

Anyone else who has t90 wave frontier here? From where you got a
pole? Normal poles are much thinner than what t90 requires.

Yes, but a steel warehouse will not fabricate a patio stand normally, you have to go to a fabricator or light engineering works..
