Please view this post as a gentle request/suggestion - this post is most
definitely not intended as a rebuke or flame ...
This list serves a number of purposes. I think some of the most useful
purposes of this list are to allow folks to learn from other folks
experiences and to build a searchable collection of community knowledge
(I've had more that a few Google searches lead back to the amsat bb).
In order to share experiences and learn from other's experiences I
suggest that the well intended phrase "please reply off-list" be used
only when it is obvious that the information to be shared is not of
general interest (such as replying to an item for sale or participating
in a heated dispute).
FWIW, I just happen to have a G5400 rotor pair and a Primestar dish
sitting in the garage waiting to be installed in my back yard and am
also interested in any responses to:
> I've got a G5500 rotor on its way to my QTH very soon, to become a part of my station. I also have a Primestar dish, the really oblong one with a single feed arm, that I want to mount on the rotor. I need some suggestions about how to mount, balance, and calibrate the dish so I don't muck up the whole thing.
> Please reply off-list
I suggest we view most of the questions asked on this list in the same
manner that an instructor/teacher in high school or college might view a
question from a student. If one student is asking a question the odds
are that there are several folks who have the same question and can make
good use of the answer(s).
