I've just been browsing the forum archive and noticed the discussion here
http://www.satellites.co.uk/php-bin/forum/archive/index.php/t-9723
about various dishes available in Europe. I added some extra info to that, including some prices and URLs. If anyone can add further info, that would be useful, especially (bargain!) prices throughout Europe.

The Jonsa dishes seem very good value, if you can believe their quoted gains. Has anyone experience of them in practice?

Nice list. :)

Jonsa are very cheaply made, with very thin steel and very difficult to assemble accurately, those figures may be possible, but I would like to see it.
