So after scanning the skies with my ku rig I realized that here in Canada most of the permanent backhauls I wanted were on C-band ! I found a 3.0M PF antenna an hours drive away. The first 3 pix are where it was. A couple of weeks ago (after lots of procrastination and hesitation) I took it down off the pole and carted it home. I got really lucky cuz it only started snowing after I got home. Most of the coating over the metal mesh was gone since the antenna is 25 years old. Gave it a thorough cleaning with a hot water/bleach/soap solution. This revealed that around the outer edges of a couple panels the metal mesh was missing. The worst is a 4" gap. So I am attaching aluminium screen door mesh in those places. I realize it's not perfect but my prime goal for this antenna is C-band not Ku. All four panels are getting a couple of coats of resin then sanding and painting.
My satellite view in my backyard is blocked by my neighbours trees so my best solution is to mount it above my roof. More pics to come as the restoration/installation progresses.
