if including installation, motor and dish, that's quite good. the only question you have to ask is if he will give you any more freebies?

i would say its a little expensive given its 2nd hand items ..
from my supplier i can buy a lot cheaper

Technomate 2600 H-H disecq motor - 33.96
Triax 1.1m Dish - 35.93
T & K bracket -6.54
2" galvanised pole - 8

Total = 84.43

But including installation 150 seems OK deal if dish/motor/bracket/pole is in decent shape ,
hope that helps ?

Thanks guys,
Bokney, what kind of freebies can i ask for? I was going to ask for 15-20 off.

Barney, just the dish is slightly (supposedly) used?
btw the robbery by chelsea still hurts!

I am worried about strong winds, damaging, displacing the dish, is this a concern?

there's nothing you can do about strong wind but tell him to install it a place where the wind is somewhat mitigated by a wall or something. or the dish has to be good quality like triax as mentioned above.

if you WANT, you can buy as suggested above, and LEARN how to install the dish by yourself. there are a lot of guides, both in videos and text to teach you how to do it.

it could be a fun learning experience.....

cheers, I Would only end up having a fight with the other half, expanding my bald patch, and missing out on this beautiful weather. oh and the ideal spot is approx 10m up, i get dizzy after 2m, and thats no joke.

I may ask him to fit a dual lnb, so i can use it on two separate boxes.
