This is DirecTV's original 18" satellite dish antenna w/ dual LNB (dual outputs). This dish typically receives programming from the 101 satellite for receiving basic DirecTV programming. This dish is approx. 18" round.
Installation was a piece-of-cake!
I’ve had my DirecTv system for almost 15 years. As the years have passed, I’ve noticed that the dish was getting a chalky covering and the LNB on the end of the boom arm was starting to look a little nasty. More to the point, with heavy weather in the area we started getting signal drop-outs with even minor rain or snow. So I bought this replacement dish and LNB kit from Amazon.
I was a little bit scared when I saw the dish for the first time because it is not exactly rounded it is about 18 x 20. But I installed it and setup my directv receiver and I can now see lots of standard TV channels (I selected 01: 18″ and in type I selected multi-switch). Great for my RV. I tried before a HD dish antenna but it was extremely difficult to find the satelites. With this standard one, I can even move the dish a couple of degrees and I still get signal
Okay for cheap, showed up looking like a refurbished dish…
Came with a decent size bend (sorta looks like a tiny speed bump in the middle of the dish) around the middle of the dish, the paint/coating seems to be chipping off a little bit. Works well enough, but looks pretty dinged up and came with no instructions (although it was fairly obvious how to put together). For a cheap dish it works, but appears to be a refurbished or poorly manufactured part.
Check the diameter of the mounting pole if you use a tripod.
I purchased this to replace a very old dish that I had been using for about 20 years. I did have to make some modifications to it because the diameter of the mounting pole had gotten larger over the years. The pole on my tripod was too small in diameter to allow the replacement dish to mount securely.
Great SD Dish
Best $38 I ever spent. Bought this to replace a brand new King Quest automatic Satellite Dish piece of junk. This was easy to set , has a bubble level at top of mounting arm. Level the top, use a compass to aim Azmith, set degree of elevation (you can get all that info by inserting your zip code in receiver satellite settings), connect the cable directly to your receiver, and bam. Had a 89% signal meter strength. Tweeked it a little an got up it to 96%. Local channels and all my home package at my camp site. Standard Deff., but that’s why this is so much easier to align 1 and not 3 satellites, which I have read can be a real pain in the a**. I highly recommend this dish, very affordable, easy set up, and Amazon had it at my door in 3 days. The tax I paid on the King Quest would pay for this.
Works great! It takes a while to get used to …
Works great! It takes a while to get used to finding the satellite, but it is very effective. I am getting 95-98 signal strength with this dish!
I really like this dish on my RV. It allows adjustment in both directions for off-level use. Very sturdy and uses 2 inch tube.
Very inexpensive dish for new
Perfect pickup on non Hd tv. Only requires one Safelite at 204%
