Hello,
I have just had a Mabo 1.85 offset dish installed and I had my old Inverto lnb re-installed with it. The guy that installed the dish for me told me that a feedhorn was the way to go with a dish this size- is he right?
Thank you in advance for any help/advice you can give me.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Can you take picture of what you currently have installed ?

Does the Mabo design normally come with a feedhorn in the package ? Some dodgy suppliers in this country used to charge for the Channel Master dish and feed separately, even though they were supplied together.

The reflector looks too deep for a Raven (CM) feed to be efficient. Do you have a specification sheet which mentions f/d ratio ?

Can you take a picture of the rear of the dish ?
