    Default Motorised Dish - India


    Hi Friends

    Can we say that a Motorised Dish = a Simple Dish + a Motor ?
    But then when I ask a local dealer at here, he told me we donot have motorised dish. So my question is, Is the motorised dishes are made differently than the simple/ordinay dishes ?

    Can I buy any simple dish and fit a motor to that ?

    If, no then can anybody giude me to buy a motorised dish in India ?

    Thanx

    I think Postioner is the other name for 'motorised dish'. You can use any dish but you need to buy appropriate motor for the size of the dish it needs to move.

    Hi; what you want to say, I could not understood.
    Before changing the position of the dish mannually, i'll put a positioner ?
    I'm not getting what ur tried to convey me dost.

    Can I make a motorised dish from a conventional dish just by putting a motor ? And checked the dish motors price on internet shops, its too cheap to have one.

    As I know positioner is NOT same as motorised dish. Positioner is just another device to properly position/point the dish to the satellite. Its used to locate the satellite easily.
    But motorised dish is regulated by a mechanical motor which rotates the dish upon receiving a command from ur remote->receiver->motor ...

    Hi,

    Motorised dish if available ready-made is better. But in India, I have not been able to get any, probably since there is no demand, and there is nobody having proper knowledge how to make one.

    But I suppose you can make a motorised dish yourself by improvising on available materials. I know of a friend who made a motor using a car wiper motor (or motor for raising the winows) in saudi arabia. This was way back 7-8 years ago, when analog channels were popular. I have also seen a positioner which looks like a long shock absorber, the motor shortening / lengthening the arm. Once the dish is correctly fitted with this motor, it only has to mov e in one axis.

    bye.
