Shawdirect 75e dish

I am looking for the LNB support arm for a Shawdirect 75e dish. The original factory one was 21 inches. If anyone has one please let me know.

Thanks

How do I know if I have a 75e? Does it say right on the dish? I've never actually climbed up on the roof to look.

Just eyeballing them, if you were comparing it to your Multistar, the 75e would not look a lot smaller, the 60e would be noticeably smaller.

The 75e looks more roundish than elliptical, the 60e looks elliptical.

the 75e J-Mount is ~ 2 inches diameter, the 60e mount is ~1.5 and looks similar in size to a Bell mount.

75e is 36x26 inches, 60e 32x18.

Doesn't look like a 75, looks like a 60 - that's for sure.

This is a better angle. 75e?



Anyway, I will keep this in case I re-subscribe. So, stecle, I can't help you. These dishes are so common, you should be able to find a support arm.

Yes, that is a 75e. I have a 60e sitting on my livingroom floor and it only has 2 bolts on the front of the dish compared to 4 bolts on this 75e above. Also there is a lot less space between the phone number and the bottom of the dish on the 60e.

To be 100% sure, get up to your dish and read the label on the LNB.

It will tell you whether it is a 60E or a 75E LNB.

From the second picture, it definitely looks like a 75e. If you look at the back, there is a different mount as well. Wasn't too sure with the first image, but the second image makes me certain that it is a 75e.

Kudos on the second image. You had the first angled perfectly as to make it look a bit compressed! Hah.

Options I see,

1) Find another 75e on Kijiji
2) Jury rig - maybe find something at Metals Supermarket
3) Order a replacement - http://www.impaktproducts.com/Channe...l-p-16654.html
4) Or, considering the price of option 3 with shipping, see option 1

The above 2 pictures are of 2 different dishes, right? Older post 60 and newer post 75.

I have a 75e arm at the shop. Does it hurt that I'm in Ontario? Let me know.
