Looks great..Good Job
Most parts were from recycled parts and scrap yard. Next I will make a box for battery and electronics.
real nice job mark
Thank you for posting this picture. I thought of doing the same.
I am into FTA (free to air) and I am using a 10 foot dish at this moment and I also have an 7 1/2 foot dish in storage.
Is your dish moveable to follow the sun and could you post pictures of the backside ?
I think the one in my pic is from 7.5 ft set up. I am working on one I like better from a bigger one most likely the 10 footer. I like the bigger one because it has a large square made of square tubing and looks like it will be easier to mount more panel to. My plan is to some day add a tracker. I will get some pics.
Johann my pics of the back are not very good, I also got a little too close to the fence, Not sure if you can see the part were the satellite dish actuator goes i have piece of straight metal to keep it stationary but some day hope to add satellite dish actuator and tracker. Too I got busy and forgot to post pics.
Mark, tank you for posting those pictures. You have a very nice setup there.
You inspire me since I would have many parts here already to do something like that.
Yes, I seen the picture with the actuator mount and your piece of metal on the picture.
I was thinking to put 6-8 100 watt panels on it, since the total amount would still weigh less than the 7 1/2 foot dish. I just bought an tracker for an different design and setup, but I did not mount it yet nor used or tested it yet.
