  1. Hi, Access Antennas sells both an 80 cm (82x76) dish and an 85cm dish for $50. I asked for an 85cm dish and was given this "squashed" 80 cm one. When I queried this I was told they are both the same as far as "ability" is concerned. The topic "Reception in southern WA" has been archived, which used to be all about VAST and satellite problems, so unfortunately in my desperation had to fall into this forum, which might be incorrect, my apologies. Is it correct to say that both dishes have the same "signal catching ability", as I used to have a Strong 85cm one before, which rusted after eight years at the mounts? By the way, one company in WA, which shall remain nameless, sells the Strong LNB without that all-important grommet. One suspects installers of that company just help themselves to the grommets in the boxes set aside for clients. In fact, that grommet gets special mention in sat fora as it needs at least a bit of silicon or, even better, a special type of insulating tape to keep the moisture out. So selling this LNB without a grommet is asking for trouble. How is the customer attaching the FME end to the LNB then? Have contacted the ES sales office and reported that firm, obviously without getting an answer back. Thanks.
