Starlink Dimensions – Dish And Mast Measurements

Photo of author

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 current (rectangular) Starlink hardware 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.

Dish

The Starlink dish antenna measures in at 20.25 inches long by 12.0 inches wide.

Mast

The outside diameter of the mast insert (the more narrow part that inserts into the base) is 1.34 inches. The outside diameter of the rest of the mast is 1.5 inches. The dimensions of the mast make Starlink perfect for aftermarket J-mounts.

The Starlink dish mast, from where it goes into the dish, is 10.75 inches long.

Mounting Base

The footprint of the Starlink mounting base measures 22.0 inches by 12 7/8 inches. It is 4.75 inches tall.

The spacing for the mounting holes is 21.5 inches on the long side, and 12.25 inches 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. 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.

Cable

For the cable, the narrow end is the dish side connector. The maximum diameter of this connector is 0.60 inches. 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.

Router/Mesh Node

The router and mesh nodes measure in at 7.0 inches wide by 10.0 inches tall by 2.5 inches deep.

Can you tell me if the mast is in the exact center of the antenna footprint. I want to make a plate the size of the antenna and bore a 1.5 hole do drop mast through.

Thank you for providing this. I needed to know the size of the cable ends (running through conduit) and don’t have cable with me.

A couple of dimensions that would be helpful for me would be the length of the insert on the mounting post at the base, and the distance from the center of rotation (rather than the edge of the pivot) to that flange that it will rest on. It’s really that dimension that matters when trying to determine if the dish will clear an obstruction when installed on one of the mounts.

Does anyone know if a shorter extension (1′ to 2′ with the proper fitting) is available to raise the antenna? I do note a pole mount available from Starlink with adaptors and a larger diameter mast but only need to raise a few feet (or less) from an existing (Starlink) mount bolted to the facia of a porch.

Take this down. 5/8 is not enough. And it is not good advice.

Can the ground pole sections be used to extend the height using standard base for rectangular starlink?

THANK YOU for providing this info – very much appreciated! Can you tell me what the dimensions and weight of the shipping box are? We’re in a weird situation and trying to decide if we can fly with our new Starlink in a carry on bag. Thanks!!
