Thread: andrews/channel master Dish advice needed


Forum: European Satellite Chat

hi, i have decided i want a channel master/andrews 1m dish because of their high build quality and reliability, i know they are more expensive than normal 1m dishes, as they have been dicontinued does anyone know where stock might still be available? a 1.2m version would require planning permission which would cost a small fortune and out of principle i dont wanna pay for it anyway thanks

    yes i have but i have read that they are not as good as the andrews type dishes,

    what i want is a dish that can be installed and not break down in years to come.

    a dish cannot 'break down'. only get damaged like everything else.
    only things can break down are either the lnb or motor.

    just looking through a trade catalogue m8, youd need the dish and a seperate az/el mount for it, as well as a pole and bracketry to mount it on, youd be looking at about 150, whereas a 1M orbital aluminium dish is about 60, if you needed to replace it in 5 years for whatever reasons, itd still work out cheaper

    andrews 1.2 dish only, 159.99 plus vat
    az/el mount (i dont think this is for motorised, but they dont list polar mounts in this catalogue) 49.95 plus vat

    a polar mount would be more

    youd also need an actuator to drive the dish, approx 30-50 quid depending on the size needed

    a V box to convert diseqc commands from the receiver to 36V commands for the actuator, about 45 quid

    a VERY heavy duty mount for it all to go on, approx 100-130 quid, plus weights (concrete slabs and sand bags)


    compared to a metal gear diseqc motor for about 60 quid and a dish for 60 quid that can be easily wall mounted or on a smaller ground mount costing about 55 quid

    a 1.1M triax dish is about 70 quid m8, 1.1M is the maximum without needing planning permission and will drive on a diseqc motor
