Satellite Dish

We have a Ross satellite system which we purchased outright. Over 1400 channels, so quite adequate for us! The dish that came with the system is a quite large metal one. It started rusting in the middle a year or so ago, and I was advised by the company to get up and paint it! Easier said than done.

Anyway, this last few days, the TV picture has been pixelating something alarming. I went out and looked at the dish and it was wobbling quite considerably in the wind. We have had the backlash of storm Ciara in this area in that we have had high winds that have brought trees down, roofs off, slates and tiles off roofs, and tonight, my dish came crashing down!

Upon inspection, the whole centre piece which had four bolts holding it onto the bracket has broken off. So there is no chance of repairing this.

Are dishes interchangeable or will I have to find another metal one somewhere?

Most dishes I think are plastic, but I don't know for sure. I could write to the company, but I would be very surprised if they had a dish they could sell me.

Re: Satellite Dish

No, in the UK. Since starting this thread, I have found someone on eBay selling the whole system, dish included. Still in the box, unwrapped. So I have bought this.

I don't know whether it will be possible to undo the retaining bolts left behind on the original brackets, or whether these too have rusted. Too far away to see. Although binoculars seem to indicate that they are rusty. The whole thing might have to be removed and substituted for the new stuff when I get it. Again though, there are retaining screws in the wall. The chances of these being rustproof, are quite small. I will have to wait until I get the box and contact a fitter to see what can be done.

When we put this up originally, I don't know what possessed us as to the position. We put it over a projection roof at first floor level. There was nowhere else that had a clear piece of wall without drainpipes, soil pipes, etc. This means that a ladder has to be put up at the side of the roof and stretch across to do it. Mind you, we did it, so it should be a piece of cake for someone who is doing this all the time. I wouldn't ask Mark, although he did help us put up the original one. He was a lot younger then and didn't have a double hernia!! So far as I recall, it was in 2010.

Anyway, the DVD boxes have been raided this last weekend, so at least I have something to watch. Dave has always asked when we were going to watch the numerous films we have.
