Re: prime star dish

FWIW, there are two kinds of Primestar dishes. The most common is the
wider than tall model, but there is a larger model that I got recently
which is marked as 1.2 M and is 51" high x 48" wide. It is still an
offset feed, but supported by three aluminum struts instead of the
single bar.
