Re: Question regarding gain of Dish Antennas with different feeds

This is a question I had, as well. I am using a helical for the feed of a
Primestar 1.0m dish. The 5 turn helix has 11(?) dB gain. Is this added to
the 25 dBi gain of the dish? There must be some addittive value over just
putting a dipole at the focus...
