|Temporary satellite dish|
until I decide where to mount it permanently. I tried to extend a cable
from the house so we wouldn't need a dish but was just too far. The dish
was only $119 and ordered it yesterday and it arrived today. Here's a
picture of the setup. We used the settings for the dish that were supplied as part of the setup program and it worked very well.
The post is a piece of 6x6 left over from the front porch post install with a couple of 4x4's on the bottom to keep it upright, I put a couple of scoops of gravel over the supports to make it more stable and to help keep it level. Hopefully it will stay put. It looks like I'll be able to mount the dish to the side of the house for a more permanent installation.
