Designed for outdoor antennas, use on side of house or roof; mount foot can be used on either end of pipe for best mounting. Electro applied gray coating for maximum protection against the elements.
It works just as it should.
This review is from: Winegard DS-3000 J-Mount for DBS Satellite Dish / Outdoor TV Antenna
Pros: I needed the longer pole featured by this product so that my different DISH antenna could "see" different satellites with new look angles. With the original shorter post, the dish reflector bumped the roof structure before the proper alignment could be achieved.
Cons: The distance between the "pivot" bolt and the adjustment bolts that secure the post to the mounting plate is different from the original DISH (AND DIRECTV) mounting assemblies. That means the post cannot be removed, and the new post assembled to the original mount plate. The mount plate must also be replaced. Fortunately though, the mounting plate hole pattern to the building structure are identical, so the original holes on the building will match the new mounting plate.
Other Thoughts: Be sure the house eave (If so mounted) will allow the post portion of the mount to clear the roof structure "overhang". so that the post can be installed vertically as the antenna will require.
