UK planning regulations mean that I cannot go over 1m, so I would like to maximize my signal by using a Gregorian.

I've seen the newer (expensive) ones like Master-Focus and Kreiselmeyer (also heard of Müller and Delta Star, not seen them yet though), but I like the look of the discontinued Fibo(stöp). Are the Philips, Grundig, Nokia, SCT and Mediagate Gregorians I've seen, rebranded Fibos?

I've searched, but can't find any for sale, even on eBay! Does anyone know of one for sale in the UK, or Europe even? Don't mind if it is second hand in good condition, as I will need to have it resprayed to match my roof tiles!

Also, I'm looking for a quality pair of 12"(30.5cm) T&K brackets that have been hot dip galvanised AFTER welding; can anyone recommend a source, preferably near London! They will need to be quite strong as the dish will be in a semi-exposed position above the gutter line, meaning that the mounting pole will be about 2m long.

I have Philips and Grundig 90cm dishes and a Grundig 120cm, all are Fibo, the diecastings are marked Fibo., and also the ser no. label on the dish. I would think that the others are also.
