Removing a Road Pro Satellite Dome


Featured Posts

We have a Road-Pro Satellite Dome for television but find it does not work very well. Does anyone know how to remove it or any engineer who could remove it for us.

Aren't they just held on by a couple of screws / bolts?? In which case they're easy to remove.

FYI - your problem may not the the dome, but where you're locaated - the dome has to 'see' the satellite group but you may have trees / buildings in the way?

 A standard or even a mini dish is (IMO) more ugly and difficult to mount.

We have a flat panel which is less obvious but awkward to mount.

This can be more of a problem than people think. Where I am, the satellite is only 23 degrees above the horizon. Roughly a quarter of the arc between the horizon and straight up. The further north you go, the lower in the sky it appears. If there is anything sticking up in the way between the dish and the satellite it will block the signal. The signal is very weak, so it takes very little to attenuate it to near nothing. Even passing through the leaves of a tree. The broadcast power from the satellite is spread across the whole UK and in to surrounding countries and sea. You are trying to pick up the tiny proportion of that which is falling on a receiver around a foot across. It always amazes me it that it work at all!

I liked mine.......but had a second satellite tuner...... for when I couldn't get onto Astra for Sky.

Used to tune  Atlantasat.....Eutelsat  and six other satellites....

 

I once watched the Eurovision song contest in Albanian. !

 

How sad was that !!!!
