Thanks Buck,

I was up there looking at the dome ( have not removed yet ) and appears it is mounted on a flat lanel screwed to the roof, think about that panel being used as a base for new antenna.

As for the control wires, since it only carries low voltage here is a crazy thought.... splice the new attenna onto the old wire and them shrink wrap and seal and do the same thing at the other end to plug into the control box. No removing roof panels. The existing wire has 8 conductors and 6 are needed for the new antenna.

I mounted mine on their corresponding mounting plate.

I basically glued it down with the VHB tape and the Sikaflex and then attached the dish in the same manor.

I like the idea of spicing to the existing control cable. Let us know how that turn out.

Well it's done and working. Removed the old dome, cleaned everthing up removed all the brackets for the dome and sealed the screw holes.

Mounted the new dish in just about the same location glued and screwed down. Spliced the wires and sealed to the existing control cable and the same at the end being the front TV. Used existing coax. Works great.

Feel like this was much easier than removing the ceiling panels and tracing down all the wires. :D

I agree. I will look more closely at this option. I may retrofit mine in the future.
