Hi Drew,

I had a typo in my original reply - it was a non-center feed (offset feed).

 From what I have read the 60cm directTV type of dish with an offset feed 
runs about 19dbic of gain and the G3RUH is rated at 21dbic.  But I also 
think it's the quality of the G3RUH patch feed that gives it an excellent 
signal - beyond that I can't say.
