RE: Question about AirLink 60cm dish



Pieter,
You are correct. It works very well. The reason for my question is that I
had planned to get an 80cm version of the same dish and convert the feed to
l band for an uplink. I will need to get into it and replace the feed, and
I don't want to destroy it. Thanks for your input.

Why mess with it. I have tried both linear and circular feeds on my dish and
I get very good performance on both. One might work better than the other at
one point but they are constantly going back and forth.
