    Nope its faval 1.3 x 1.25 and now its got a bend in the bottom of the outer surface but I hope it does not effect the face. The ground mount t brackets where stopping me going to 26e ok for 7w but I was trying to put a motor on and tighten the bolts up on the dish and it dropped. I'll straighten the outer edge and it will be ok.

    Thanks for all the help and advice guys.

    I set my dish up using Thor at 0.8 west as my reference. When I press GOTO 0 should my dish move to 0.8 west? Because it does not seem to receive a signal after GOTO 0 is pressed.

    This may account for me getting a stronger signal when I tweak my long and lat settings?

    Was your Motor set to 0, before you rotated it around the pole to line up on 0.8 W?
    If not, this would explain why you have no signal.

    I didn't install it so I can't be sure. I am researching how to install a system though so I can re-align and maintain the system as and when needed.
