Re: Supporting the super jack.

Didn't you get an actuator plate with your dish? Rather than bolting the actuator jack to the dish arm, you bolt the actuator plate to the arm and the jack to the actuator plate. This gives the jack more leverage and allows for more travel. BTW, there is nothing much on 65w c band for us (south amer...
