Bob, ED, I have two Primestar dishes one 30X40" and one 30X32", and they 
both work
very well with a homebrew helix feed...I trimmed both helices for max 
gain...I'm now
using a homebrew patch on one, seems to work a tad better than the helix...

Can't respond to the 1.2 question, am in the process of installing it...
