"Yes you can mount it on a pole in the garden. Just make sure pole is sturdy and unlikely to move. I.e fix the pole to a bracket on a concrete slab or fence"

"They usually face south-south east and they can be out either on a chimney or wall dependent on line of sight being clear. Hope this helps"

"Good morning a satellite must always be aligned to the correct satellite. The actual dish must be fixed to a permanent structure eg wall chimney garage etc

"It all depends on the location and the line of sight. They can be installed in the garden on a pole mount, or a strong fence post. As long as there is a line of sight they can be installed anywhere really"

"Dishes can be installed anywhere where there’s a good line of sight. Some local authorities do not permit dishes in certain areas of a property (on the front in public view)"
