Is the prodelin dish installed yet mate?

What make 1.8 are you going to get?

Should be interesting to see what you can get on a small offset;)

Please keep us informed:)

hi rd the holder for my 1.2mtr offset dish for c-band i used 52mm copper tubing cut 1inch of it then cut it in half soldered 4 lugs to the two halves thats the cradle to hold lnb then made the rest up to fit dish similar to ku holder,for the offset scaler ring i cut a normal scaler ring in three parts then with six small brackets bolted the brackets to the three parts so each part is staggered then put 1 inch wide ali inside all the three parts it gives you more gain.
