Re: small dish



Bob,
I did a patch feed, LH CP on a 20" prime focus dish, good signals on AO-51, 
relitively easy to aim by hand. Guess not much difference in performance on 
an 18 " dish would be expected. Tryed a bare feed helix 3.5 T and Patch with 
poor results. I could hear well with full quieting for 1-2 Seconds and then 
a fade to noise, then good signal. Dish gain filled in the nulls nicely, an 
allows for hand pointing.
