AO-40 transp. noise: hw big the dish ?

Hi board,

Hope that's not to often discussed

just want to be sure in recommending new A0-40 users to go for max rec. 
capabilities and best being able hearing transp. noise.
What I know you need is at least a 3ft. dish. Having a 90 cm/1 m solid dish 
and 0.6 dB NF is ok ??
Trading NF for diameter or vice versa ?
This seems quite doable for me for many people, at least much easier than 6 
or 10 footer or even bigger monsters.

Has anyone other recommendations ??
