Manual satellite dish positioner. Answered

I'd like to switch the position of my sky satellite dish between two satellites positions from the ground.?


You can buy a dish antenna rotator that is motorized for left-right/up-down. Depending on your satellite box, it can issue commands through the coax or else have a separate controller box to move the dish once it is oriented to a starting point. You mount the rotator to the main mast and then the dish to the rotator. Just do a search for it. Good luck.

Hi, thanks believe it's called diseqc. I change satellite very rarely though & don't want to invest in a motor. Looking for some kind of mechanical solution. Perhaps turning a vetical pole, translating to linear movement of dish (with two end stops. best regards Waldy

don't mess around with the dish, you'll screw it up
