    My dish fell off the wall yesterday! It was installed in Sept 1999, and is made by Grundig. The reason is that there is a short "hockey stick" to which the dish was attached, and this was made out of very thin steel. The steel has simply rusted away - not good news for a 4plus years installation. My TV aerial on the other hand was installed in 1978 and still soldiers on in spite of the hurricane of 1987.
    If you have access to a Grundig dish, and there is any possibility of it falling and injuring anyone, I would seriously suggest that your have a look, to check that all is well. I can provide a picture of the offending item if needed

    I know the feeling, my TV aerial was installed on a flimsy J shaped bracket and rusted through after a couple of years, ended up getting a reputable local installer to put up a new one a couple of months ago on a decent bracket.

    Now my satellite dish that's a different matter, did it myself using a T & K bracket, heavy duty pole and huge bolts, now that isn't going anywhere :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
