My first thought when looking at that stand was, how well will the dish stay in place with a good gust of wind behind it?.
What sized dish is on the end of this mast and how high is it?.
Other side of the coin, how exactly is that Grounding wire attached to the rusty steel stand?.
Wouldn't grounding the mast to the length of EMT that carries the fan wires introduce electrical interference into the Sat installation?.
Just my opinion, but I don't reckon there's been any planning put into this job. [Linked Image]

Creative, my sympathies to anyone who doesn't see that wire and ends up tripping over it.

I have a sense of adventure, I just keep it leashed with common sense.
