1.2GHz and K5GNA BBQ Ant ??

Mark Brueggemann K5LXP recently inquired about a 1.2GHz antenna but
mentioned he had a K5GNA barbecue dish and  converter.  Since I have my
antennas down for rework, (since I moved) I am wondering the same thing.

I am also curious if covering the BBQ grill with screening material on the
K5GNA unit is worth the trouble.  There was lots of discussion about it when
AO-40 was working, but I do not remember anyone saying it was worth the
trouble.  Anybody add the screen material to the unit and what kind of
improvement did you hear......
