Gibertini 1.25m motorised dish driven by the AD3000, with either Inverto BU Quad or Norsat / XMW Ka LNBs . SMW 1.05m + 3 other dishes. Speccy: Promax HD Ranger+
My Location
The Flatlands of East Anglia
Slightly intrigued by this issue, I had a look at the Gibertini website: the full range of dishes is here, and the listed (now sold) single arm dish (and Llew's dish) appears to be a 125LP, whereas the V-arm version is is the 125L as shown here.

The illustration of the 125LP is not very clear, but if you look closely I think it can be seen that the single arm is held in place by a riveted bracket just like both the listed and Llew's dishes.

That page also mentions, and shows, "Optional Supports" for the single arm to the edges of the dish face - but those are not listed on the linked "Accessories" page which shows only the accessories for the 125L, so I wonder how you could order them if required???

PS: the single feedarm on the bigger OP150S is really "kinky" (literally!:lol:) and has those "supports".
Yes, that website does explain the differences a little more clearly. For instance the 125L seems more suited to a fixed dish installation, as it has an integrated mounting bracket on the backplate, whereas the 125LP has no such bracket, necessitating the purchase of a separate bracket for a fixed dish/polar mount assembly.

Not sure what the 'P' suffix means. Or 'L' come to that. Probably an Italian word.

That's a very special dish @RimaNTSS . Where was it used for and where are you going to use it for?

I like when dishes are not ordinary. Dish was used by television company. How exactly....I do not know. If I get it will try to install somewhere in the yard and catch couple of sat-signals.

Yes of course, but do you have a particular satellite in mind? Ku or C band?

Do you have actuators that can handle it ?

Nope. I did not even see antenna yet. As far as I understood it has Az/El mount, which means it can be adjusted manually. So, manual pointing will be my initial way to go.

Still no bids on that £25-starting price Gibby in Tuxford with just under 3 days to go.

OTOH, if someone is feeling really "flush" then how about one from Wrexham at a mere £999.99, and you will get "FREE" postage?:D
