What is the pole sized needed to mount the Exede Dish? Bonus question what size for Dish Network dish, also.
Local place keeps saying they need to order the poles, so frustrating, they are just poles. Going on a month now.
Doing my own post work, running solid copper rg6, grounding, bonding...just need the poles. Figured I could just swing by Home Depot and pick up a couple.
From my searching it seems that the exede post needs to be at least 9 feet long and schedule 40 pipe but haven't found the size (1-1/2" 2", ???)
If you have a VERY long coax run, LMR-400-75 cable is superior to anything the installer shows up with and you could argue it is needed for a long cable run (over 200'), otherwise, let the installer supply the cable.
If you use LMR-400-75, remember to get their connectors as that cable cannot use standard F-75 types.
Thanks for replying to my first post ever on this site and NOT answering my question.
ViaSat-approved, exactly, what does that mean?
"More specifications", great!, what are they?
Not asking for proprietary info here, just pole sizes. (original question)
Reading my post you would have seen that the reason I'm even signing up and posting here is because it's been so frustrating waiting almost a month for the "installer" to order/get the posts.
As for the "not a DIY job" stuff, you don't know my skill level and having a blanket response like you guys use comes across as demeaning and indifferent.
If an installer allows the customer to do any of the installation, the installer will be held responsible if anything is not to specifications.
