Mine is 1 3/4" but, I am sure you can find one. I bet if you see a Installer and ask him he will give you one or check out ebay. Anyway here is what it looks like.

I just looked on ebay and they have em for 2" OD that's the size mine is OD.

Will any of the portable dishes receive Direct TV in HD? The Weingard Carryout and Tailgater say SD only for Direct TV, but will receive HD for DISH and Bell. I will be going with the system that will provide HD.

The carry outs don't get hd for direct tv, only dish. I was told that direct tv doesn't think there is much of a market for it. I disagree. To get a hd signal on direct tv you will need to find a hd dish and a hd receiver. For hd from dish you need the he receiver and a hd dish or hd globe/carry out

From start to finish it takes me less than 10 minutes. Personally I don't care for the round bubble levels. I use a 9" torpedo level on the post. It doesen't have to be exact. This will get you plenty close with a typical compass.

The setup I use is portable in a sense and yes it gets HD. I got a H25 receiver that is about as big a book which doesn't take any space in the camper..
