Not trying to hijack your thread rd100 but I was thinking of getting a Maplins 1.8m dish and just wanted to get a few views .The base looks a little fragile to me.Would also like to try c band as well:cool:

I suppose they are value for money, as they cost next to nothing, but unless you are prepared to spend a lot of initial time on the setup, the results you achieve will be disapponting. They are probably better for C-Band than Ku-Band.

Wellin fact it was thinking of getting another 1.8m fortec star prime focus as they work well on c-band i picked up loads last time,

Its worth £94 but you do need the kuu-band feed for ku band and c-band lnb-f for c-band,

As for the dish base i just bolted it to a spare patio slab

here is just a few i picked up c-band on 1.8m fortec star
