HD or SD? Big difference.

This is a $200 heavy duty kit for a Slimline dish from tv4rv:



I love this thing. Sturdy as a rock and easy to set up.

I have used this same tripod for our satellite antenna for fifteen years now. It gets used hard every summer, but I have never had to repair it. I used a pvc pipe for the center post to attach the antenna.

I prefer this taller mount as I don't have to get down on my knees to aim it. I use big spikes through the holes on each of the legs to hold it securely once I get the satellite signal.

It has blown over twice, but both times the winds were gusting and around 50mph. But, the dish was never damaged.

I carry this tripod with the dish attached in the bed of our truck.

If you're HD (TV4RV)...2oldman said it all. If you're SD it would be overkill.

I vote for the tv4rv tripod. I use mine 12 months out of the year with a HD dish. Easy to set up and aim and sturdy.

Are you sure you need a tripot? I built a stand from 2 inch pvc pipe and it works great for us. Stand base is approximately 20 inches by 24 inches with a 2 inch vertical pipe in the middle. I fill it with water to add weight when we use it. Never been blown over and the cost is cheap.
