      The answer to your bracket question is that the brackets should be no less than 1/5 of the pole length apart if used to mount a TV aerial. That's just for safety. As a dish is heavier and far more susceptible to loss of signal through movement, I'd recommend 1/4 as a minimum AND use the widest possible diameter of pole to minimise movement.

      Thanks Sam. I have an approx 5ft 1.25" steel mast, so I will aim for the brackets to be about 1.25ft apart.

      I'd be surprised if my 43cm minidish is heavier than my normal aerial though as it's a Televes DAT45 and they are big, heavy buggers!
