These are pictures of the triax PF 140 feedhorn, this is certainly over 15 years old.

You could open a museum soon with all your dishes and sat stuff you collected over the years.

I cannot say that it is my hobby yet.
Microwave telecom technology is quite challenging but I do not find in the forums what should satisfy me.
I am thinking of studying the matter more seriously (academically) in order to find the answers I need.
Then, I could be able to tell you about satellites being a hobby.
