The tongues measure 50 mm by 50 mm and securely slot into your car’s tow bar telescopic mast. This makes it an ideal mast for temporary set-up in remote areas. 

It has an adjustable height of 2 m by 3.8 m providing excellent flexibility. That said, it is ideal for both semi-permanent and temporary communications. 

You can choose a deck mount or rail in the Starlink dish adaptor for the marine industry.

 This Starlink adaptor is aluminum with screw fitting, which you can easily attach to the marine base. It’s advisable to use a metal base due to Starlink dish weight. 

The rail mount has a 1X 14T socket to fit marine antennas, the same as the deck mount. 

These adapters are made from stainless steel, ensuring longevity even in harsh marine environments. 

This versatile and durable solution elevates antennas up to 3.8 m high. 

The drawbar mount fits masts up to 40 mm in diameter, offering secure positioning with two M12 grub screws and a 90 degrees swivel for easy stowing. 

The 3.8 m telescopic aluminum mast adjusts from 2.1 m to 3.8 m folds down to 2.1 m, and includes a machined Starlink adapter for storage at 1.8 m.

 It’s ideal for caravans and other applications; it ensures reliable Starlink satellite mounting and seamless connectivity. 

The Starlink tripod is durable and versatile if you are looking for a mast up to 4.2 m high that can stand even on uneven terrain.

 It offers stability in windy locations by lowering the mast and securing feet. 

Starlink tripod tubular feet have mounting holes for pegging, ensuring a reliable setup. The mast has adjustable feet and high-quality 6 mm thick aluminum.

 It also has a width of 1850 mm between its feet, suitable for various industrial applications. 

The mast is demountable, foldable, and re-deployable for easy transportation. You will purchase the fet separately, along with an 8 mm stainless steel stopper pin for added safety. 


The best mast for you will depend on how you want to mount your dish and where you want to mount it. 

For instance, if you want to mount your dish on a fascia board or wall, a J-shaped mast can be ideal. 

You can get masts specifically designed for marine or RV applications if you want to use them in such areas. 

The exact location your Starlink dish should face depends on your location. However, we suggest the dish should not face straight up. 

You should tilt it at 15 – 35 degrees from facing straight up. And in most locations, we recommend it faces north. 

Starlink dish sizes vary depending on the type of dish. The original round dish is 23.2 inches in diameter, 11 inches long, and 4 inches thick.

 The current rectangular dish is 19 inches by 12 inches. The High-Performance dish, which is mostly square, measures 22 inches by 22 inches.
