Somehow I doubt this flimsy (as least it looks flimsy to me) can firmly hold antenna more than 1.2m.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

When I worked with our local Gibertini supplier, they did not recommend polarmounting the 150 reflector. I can't believe this is being sold as compatible for anything up to a 2m.

If anyone wants a decent polarmount design to use or copy (good for 1.2m offset, I would not recommend larger, or prime focus design without some redesign) I have a clean one of these in the shed.

£70 delivered to the UK including the 3" clamps. I have been using the one shown for testing with a DiSEqC 1.2 linear actuator from Geotrack with good results.
