 15.0 Foot (4.5m) C-Band Polar Mount Mesh Satellite Antenna (Commercial)

DESCRIPTION

Introducing our commercial-grade, heavy-duty, dual-ring, high performance 15.0ft / (4.5m) C/Ku-Band polar mount prime focus mesh satellite dish. The large size and tight beamwidth of this dish ensures you will receive 100% of North American TV broadcasts and 100% of Central and South American TV broadcasts. You will get everything!!! It can be used as a stationary dish (includes two lock down bars) or fully motorized with an actuator (not included) to track multiple satellites. The aesthetic appeal of this mesh dish makes it perfect for urban and rural areas where reliable C-Band reception is required.

This dish is primarily designed for mission critical operations and recommended for TV/Radio stations, cable headends, embassies/consulates, universities and other organizations that desire commercial-grade quality. Designed and tested with the North American user in mind but works equally well in other parts of the world too. The extremely large aperture size of this antenna makes it perfect for fringe reception of out-of-footprint satellite signals (e.g. 65W, 70W, 75W and 114.9W), radio astronomy surveying and moon bounce experiments. If you are an expat living in Central or South America, Bermuda, Hawaii, South Caribbean, Greenland or French Polynesia, then this is the dish size you need to receive American and Canadian TV programming.

Note: This is our latest model (2022) with heavy-duty mount, dual-ring, superior steel construction, steel rear panel brace support, thicker panel ribs, larger dish arm, jumbo sized threaded rods, dual sided actuator plate, two lockdown bars and thicker gauge steel throughout for zero slop operation. Field proven and reliable or your money back!

Note: Accepts powered elevation with an 18" or 24" heavy-duty actuator. Sold separately.

Note: Accepts powered declination with a 6" heavy-duty actuator. Sold separately.

Note: Accepts powered azimuth control with a 7" slewing drive. Sold separately.

Note: Accepts powered skew button hook feed assembly for ultra-precise tuning. Sold separately.

Note: Requires 6.5" O.D. mounting pole (in-ground, pyramid base or king post) which is sold separately.

Note: This antenna comes with a dual-ring mount. Please note that some pictures here may not show the 2nd ring.

Note: This antenna is intended for commercial use.

Note: This is a very large antenna and will experience significant wind resistance. We highly recommend this product be installed by a TVRO professional who has experience with oversized antennas. We recommend you install it immediately behind a building to cut down on the wind resistance encountered. We also recommend re-enforcing the pole mast for structural integrity.

Note: This a very heavy dish. To avoid injury, DO NOT lift this dish by yourself. The mount itself weighs over 200 lbs and the fully assembled dish is in excess of 350 lbs. Ask someone to help you lift the mount on the pole.

Note: Our antennas are well received by satellite TV enthusiasts. You can find a review of our consumer mesh antennas at Satellite Guys
