[Exede] Pole

Switching from HN to Exede. question: Can I use the same pole? I see where Exede states 2" OD. My steel pole that is being used for HN is a tad bit larger. Mine is more like 2 3/8 and most so called 2" are 2 1/4 actual OD.

Yes
There is an adapter for Exede/ WB

If it is schedule 40 pole
Hughes specs schedule 40 also but many installers cheated

Regarding pipe sizes, the diameters listed are approximate inside diameter. The actual OD of a 2" Sch40 is 2.375". That's what Hughes specifies. But as Liberty says, there's a reducing coupler available that will neck down a 2" Sch40 pipe to accept the Exede mount.

Generally you can cut off the 2 inch pipe from the mount and add a few well placed self tapping screws and you have an instant adapter. I doubt the specification NAZI's will approve

Old pole didn't do me any good. The one tree on that entire side was in the way. Set a new pole. Of course I had the old setup neatly ran underground in pipe with good grounding. Wow i get to redo everything and with my luck cables will be 1 inch to short to use existing cable....LOL. So far I love my new speeds with Wildblue. I do like HN data counter better.
