Hi Domenico

Yes it is a 3.3 m dish with a triband patch feed I copy a ?Z7PCF on this pass a 
low one signal was about 52. I have a UHF 7 elements waiting to be tested as 
sson WX will improve it will be less directional and easy to manoever with LEO.

I send you a picture of the dish in his "summer configuration"
