looking higher..10GHz?

I saw this tonight:

Also, please consider the following from: http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/express/
P5-A Transponder Experiment: 2560 MHz (S) uplink and 10450 MHz (X) downlink. Also usable as a linear 
transponder with approximately 50 KHz bandwidth. 

Inasmuch as P3E is destined to have 10GHz down, I wonder what type of dish might match up with this feed?  It seems like a very inexpensive feed, if it makes sense to consider.  If not, it's like throwing money away ;)

Can anyone share their thoughts on this feed and what type of dish might match up?  (Of course, the issue of a 10GHz downconverter comes to mind, too!!)
