Re: 23/13cm dual helix feeds - response


          Gunther, thank you for your note and photography (good quality, I 
think so). I`m looking for good dualband feed which  I`ll try with 2.4m 
dish. I have second one 1.8m dish but I using it for TV. Your construction 
is very interesting and I`ll try to test it beacause itsnt hardly to built. 
           I`m afraid then 3dB to 6dB drop level (with Helix feed) arent to 
accept for EME test. I`ll try to work on EME with my 2,4m dish on 23cm and 
13cm also. In my home area I have place only for one dish, then  the best 
 way is use one dish with dualband feed.
          However I`ll try to built your construction Helix feed and test 
it to AO40 operation. I`m afraid drop in levels, for example 6dB lost with 
Helix at 2,4m is like  using 1,2m dish.

Best regards

Rafal SP9VFD
