RE: AO40 dish



the only problem i havnt seen on the bb is "the bigger the dish, the more
accurate you need to be".

like with a 60cm dish, u can be a few deg out, start getting higher and it
goes even if your a degree off.

i know its obvious, but some people might not know :).

anyways, you keep an eye on that dish, i might pop round a steal it from you
;).

good luck with ao-40.

Speak to you later.

a 60cm dish may be all you need to hear the satellite under good conditions,
but you'll never be sorry if you can get a 10 foot dish working for you...

lot's of flexibility there, as long as you can make it track accurately...

it can be your downlink, and your uplink antenna for all the AO-40 bands
simultaneously..

You won't need to spend your money on amplifiers..

and you'll hear everything that's on the bird, at any time..

convinced yet..??
