Good evening from a wet and windy Mullion Cove Cornwall : )

I am looking to replace my 1.3 Precision dish with a larger size of the same make.

I am not sure what sizes they made, but 1.5 or possibly 1.8 could be of interest.

The price has to be reasonable, as carriage on a dish that size with insurance is going to be quite expensive.

I would sort a carrier out from this end, unless the seller has some thing set up.

God Bless Spiff

Spiff,

How big do you want to go? Precision made quite a range of dishes such as 1.5m, 1.8m, 2.0m, 2.2m and 2.4m. They also made larger sizes but I am guessing larger than 2.4m might not be on your shopping list?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Did TJ sell that restored 1.8 ?

If I remember correctly it sold the last time he listed it on eBay, however I am not 100% sure on that.

Good evening for a windy Mullion Cove Cornwall.

I am holding off on my search until I can find a local carrier, as it is proving to be a problem : )

Good evening Channel Hopper what a great idea, though some in land locations could be a little problematic : )

For the sake of clarity I think the below information may be useful?

The Precision 1.5m dish setup that I sold to "Spiff" was sold primarily as a Ku band upgrade to replace his current Precision 1.3m dish as per his original post in this topic. I pointed out to "Spiff" by PM that although the Precision 1.5m dish would be reasonable for C-Band it would be missing a lock on quite a few transponders.

As an alternative option for a C-Band dish I had previously offered "Spiff" via PM a 2.0m Precision dish and indicated that the 2.0m dish was was much more suited to C-Band than the 1.5m dish.

There we have it, I hope that avoids any confusion over the purpose of the 1.5m dish that I sold to "Spiff". It was not sold on the basis of it being fit for purpose in C-Band, it was sold as being fit for purpose in Ku-Band but with limited capability in C-Band, this point was explained to "Spiff" by PM.

Good Morning from a chilly Mullion Cove.

All 100% the 1.5 is destined to replace my 1.3 Precision eventually on KU.

In the mean time the 1.5 and its mount will temporally replace my 1.4 Triax with its flimsy mount on C band.

Later on I hope to upgrade to a 1.8 on C band, unfortunately there is not enough room for a 2 metre dish.

I should like to add that Moonbase has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help me sort things out. : )
