I've set up a couple of the 80cm ones and was singularly unimpressed with the quality, particularly with the flimsy nature of the azel bracket.

There's an 80cm ISS dish near where I live, mesh type, it looks ok, but I wouldn't buy one for myself... O-no

They just look like the old 80cm Mesh analogue sky dishes to me...

Basically am between ISS 1.5(1.6x1.5) or Gibertini 1.6m.

I found the ISS for 205 pounds (inc. shipping & ground stand) and the gibertini for 220 (inc. shipping). What you think?
