Re: DirecWav satellite internet useful?



I have three 18-inch Dish-Net dishes (same service as Direct-TV) 
which are used with my 10-GHz feedhorn or with a 6-turn helix feed 
for 2400-MHz.  These dishes are used at 11-12 GHz.  The DirectWav is 
maybe the satellite internet connection?

The LNA probably is possibly usable on 10.451 GHz which is one of the 
proposed P3E downlink frequencies.
