Paint not gonna decrease ur signal any way............. May it's not theoretically proved but I feel Silver Colour may increase signal a bit................

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Not very good advice, the sun reflecting off the surface will heat up the LNB at certain times throughout the year... Not a good idea I would have thought, matt finish, non lead based, non metallic paint required, otherwise you will change the signal reflective properties of the dish :-ohcrap

Matt or satin car paint seems to do the job very well, remember to give the surface a light sand first to ensure long lasting results.

Hello

I painted my 6 ft off set dish (fibre) with white mat finish which works out well the signal strength was fair enough upto 93% on 138E& 146E

Prior to this I had Aluminum foil , over laped to get better signal ,which ultimately burnt 3 LNB's ,hence I removed the Aluminum foil and paited with white paint. So silver paint is not advisable.
