I'm looking for a feedhorn, which suits best with Paraclipse Hydro solid dish (240cm). :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Have you got the f/d of the dish ?

Is this for C or Ku band ?

Linear or circular ?

I'm using it for Ku-Band reception. Linear polarisation. The focal distance is about 74 cm.

Paraclipse apparently made a 230cm (actually 228, or 7.5') but not a 240cm.

This makes quite a difference on the f/d ratio, 0.32X as opposed to 0.30X, and so the optimum feed would change.

Are you using the original mesh on the reflector ?

Yes, the diameter of the dish is 228,6cm. The focal distance is 74cm. :) I'm not using the original mesh on the reflector. ;)
