Fibostöp used to make the great gregorian dishes way back in time....

I have been trying to find one to buy but it's impossible, however i found a similar gregorian dish that seems to be the exact copy of the Fibostöp dishes.

Does anyone have or seen the gregorian dishes from "Master Focus" in Germany?

Are they good quality or are they cheap?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Can you provide a website , or maybe specifications ?

Theres a company in Scotland that has a few Fibo dishes left, and maybe the mould that produces them

What I can't understand is, the Gregorian dish is acclaimed as being amongst the best, so why don't manufacturers make them?

I got quoted €239 for the 90 cm which seems like the biggest they have at the moment.

The reason they don't make them anymore is all about marginals, people aren't prepared to pay premium for quality these days, it's all about budget product where the companies can get the highest profits, pretty boring these days.

I remember way back in the end of the 80's when i had a Winegard 2,4m and Chaparall made the Monterey 20 and 40 receiver, heck even the Cheyenne receiver i had once...

None of these products aren't even made anymore, they don't even make polarotors for Ku-band anymore, and people today don't even know what it is when i talk to some......

I will try to set up a 90 cm Fibo antenna on my balcony in here in Sweden just to get something to play with as i can't fit a 1,2 meter here.
