Get The Best Reception, Southern Wa

2 posts in this topic

Have cut the tree and bought a new LNB via Fleabay. iTechworld in Belmont wanted to sell me a new LNB without the grommet, which is an essential item, so I had to buy it from eBay! Have contacted Strong to advise them of their dealer is not supplying the grommet with the LNB. Seems to be a very important item for staff there to take them out of the boxes?

It was not the mast wobbling despite three guy wires, it was a huge Swamp Mahogany with its branches waving in the line-of-sight, which caused the signal to vary. An offset 80cm ($50) one works well and signal strength is now 90 and quality is 71. The prime focus Strong 85cm dish would have cost me $100.

Sprayed an extra coat on the mountings to improve the life of the system. And used a lot of silicon at the grommet to stop moisture ingress.
