It's Gregorian... ;)

They're not easy to come by these days, ebay is your best bet, or maybe the members' trading section on here.... :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

If it is a 90 or 55cm then it is most likely a toroidal design, not a gregorian.

Now this one really does look like a proper satellite dish and not an anaemic wok. The Gregorian layout employs two dishes, the incoming signal is focused by the 90cm offset dish onto a small secondary reflector, which further concentrates the signal onto the LNB. It’s a highly efficient design, though the jury is still out on whether the additional cost and complexity of this design is better than, say, a larger dish or more efficient LNB. The price looks steep but this is a fine example of Norweigan precision engineering, and it’s built to last. It comes complete with a low noise (1.0d:cool:, dual-band LNB that covers pretty well all of the frequency bands used by the majority of TV satellites. What’s more it includes a motorised polar mount and can track across the whole of the ‘Clarke Belt’; with the right receiver, positioner, decoders and a clear view of the Southern sky this dish is capable of picking up several hundred TV channels!

This is not the sort of dish you would use just to watch Astra channels, it’s designed for those who want to explore wider horizons, but haven’t necessarily got the space for a mini Jodderel Bank in their back yard. Performance checks on Astra were pretty meaningless, it worked exceptionally well, however, it really showed its mettle on the lower-power satellites, and in particular the more exotic ones further down towards the Western and Eastern horizons which carry news feeds and unscheduled programming, where it compared well with a 1.2 metre reference dish.

This forum has really turned into a Fibostöp fanclub and even i had a english guy from Luton taking the plane over to Sweden to pick up a brand new Fibo 90cm at my location.

And i have sold 2 years ago a Fibo 90cm brand new fully loaded with a Echostar DVR-7000 and Jaeger H-H motor, LNB to a american guy in Tokyo, Japan.
