A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Plenty of companies make larger.

For example

Andrews, formerly Channel Master, make a two piece 2.4m that performs very well at all frequencies

Prodelin (probably renamed Tripoint Global, to cover issues in production/QC)make a 3.8m in four pieces, that is claimed to work out of the box at Ku band *snigger*

But neither of these are light alternatives.

Why are you looking for offset anyway ?

If youwant larger,then you shouldreally be looking at primefocus dishes.

Best ones for reception are (were- from 2000) made in middle Russia. I installed a couple of 4.5m units in my time over there.

Again ,not light,and would take about three days to assemble correctly.

What size do you think you would be happy with ?

Hello!
i want,to use,this cband device,that you see,on the picture,for optimeizing the signal,it only works,on offset dishes,phisicaly reason,not compatible to pfa dishes..
dont know,englisch name,for this item,in german calles"trichterrillenfeedhorn`"

4,5 M,in Central Europe,brings in kuband,not much more ,then 2,4 m,10 years ago,it was difrent,now the satelites are stronger in kuband!

the,reason,why i also need offset dishes,i must everthing install on roof,and heavey dishes,are complex,to fit on roof..offset,are much lighter!

on ebay germany at the moment a nice channel master 1,80 m,but without lnb feedholders,and mount,only the antenna,does anyone know,where i can buy this,missing parts seperatly?

Hello Crossbones!
good morning:)
wow,nice pictures,in the other topic!
dont know,how i made my own mount,coz iam no mechnican,maybe ,not su much people can do this,Bowall,on the Polar Circle,(self)makes also the mount !

problem is,the channel master dishes,are not so popular here,then in uk,so i dont know any source in austrian stores

can you give me,the exact lenth of the lnb streps

also,in another auction house nice channel master 3 Meter Dual Axis,for 550 + shipping but i dont find any carrier,that would ship this size :D

would great deal for the price only 240 km away from my location,tomorow,i must call,the seller,to get,more information about this nice maybe,would be great for paksat in cband,in italian boards i read,it is posible to reveive,in my nabour country,with 3 meter dish,so this would be the only way to reveive this satelite !!

hm,all good installers,only living in the net,far away..
does andrew,and channel master,in the same dish category old channel master dishes,and newer andrews ,does exactly have,the same f/d ratio,and gain winning,or is a little bit difrent?

channel master 1,m80 would coast 250€ including shiping,but without the rest,it is useless,so i dont know,what i should do,@ the moment...
