Satellite Antenna Mounts

The tripod setup is the most common mount, but dishes can also be mounted on a pole, roof or wall. Call us if you would like help deciding which is best for you. Click on the little blue magnifying glass, to see photos of the different mounts and some additional information.

A good-quality tripod is by far the most portable, flexible, lightweight and stowable of the mounting options. Additionally, it does not have to be permanently fixed to a surface like the trimast. Nor do you need to carry cinder blocks for ballast, as for the non-pen. For the tripod, you can use a 6-gallon water jug. It is lightweight for travel when empty and provides just over 50 lb of ballast when full.

If you order the tripod, be sure to select the hardware set without the Stanley Keeper, since one is included and will be pre-installed in the tripod. All of the tripod setup items, except the tripod stabilizer and the bag, are needed for a tripod mount.
