Sorry I had trouble doing a link but it’s the flag pole buddy 1.5 or 2.0 mounting brackets. Was wondering if it’s strong enough for a pole with a satellite dish mounted to it going down the road.

I have a collapsible 22' fiberglass pole mounted to the ladder and it comes down before travel. I doubt the mounts would be strong enuf for your purposes. I think of the wind forces acting on your satellite dish would harm it.

never. It's plastic, the pole can bounce up and down, the antennae is heavy in comparison. Don't even think of this.

I would never go down the road with it, but you could engineer something to still use that method. just put it up, take it down as needed. I use the flagpole buddy mounts for my cellphone booster donor antenna mounted to a few sections of old flagpole I no longer use. Works great.

As a side note, i no longer use flagpolebuddy flagpoles. The fiberglass sections are too weak, as in the pinholes enlarge, etc. I now use flagpole from uncommonflagpoles. Much beefier, mounts with a trailerhitch adapter, or under-the-tire mount, etc.

We had a Flag Pole Buddy, but gave up on it after the third time the pole broke with just a flag on it, so I wouldn't even try putting any type of Sat Dish on it while parked, yet alone going down the road.
