Hi Don,

I'm a real beginner in microwaves, also, but cut a mirror into about
1" squares, and paste about 8 of them scattered around the dish.  Point
it at the sun, move a piece of translucent paper up and down, and it will
give you a place to start.  The feeds I've experimented with are not
necessarily at that point, but with a suitable signal one can adjust from
