Measure twice, cut once. Isn’t that the saying? If you are going to DIY any part of your Starlink mounting or installation project, a good set of measurements is a great resource. In this guide I will provide the most commonly requested dimensions for the Standard (rectangular) Starlink kit.
I’ll provide dimensions for the Starlink dish, mounting base, router, and cable. If you are building some kind of custom mount, hopefully this helps you plan your design more efficiently. If there are any dimensions missing from this guide that you think would be helpful, leave a comment or send me an email.

The Standard Starlink dish measures in at 20.25 inches long by 12.0 inches wide. (514.35 mm x 305 mm)
The outside diameter of the mast insert (the narrow part that inserts into the base) is 1.34 inches (34 mm). The outside diameter of the rest of the mast is 1.5 inches (38 mm).
The Starlink dish mast, from where it goes into the dish, is 10.75 inches (273 mm) long.
The footprint of the Starlink mounting base measures 22.0 inches by 12 7/8 inches. It is 4.75 inches tall. (559 x 327 x 120.65 mm)
The spacing for the mounting holes is 21.5 inches (546 mm) on the long side, and 12.25 inches (311.15 mm) on the shorter side. This is measured center to center.
The mounting holes are oblong and the dimensions are 0.60 inches tall by 0.26 inches wide (15.24 x 6.6 mm). A 1/4 inch or M6 screw/bolt would fit perfectly through these mounting holes.
The inside diameter of the mounting base mast opening is 1.35 inches (34.29 mm).
For the cable, the narrow end is the dish side connector. The maximum diameter of this connector is 0.60 inches (15.24 mm). If you need to drill a hole through a wall for the cable, a 3/4″ drill or spade bit should be enough. The cable itself has a diameter of 0.27 inches (6.86 mm).
The Gen 2 router measures in at 7.0 inches (177.8 mm) wide by 10.0 inches (254 mm) tall by 2.5 inches (63.5 mm) deep.
