Ive narrowed my choices of dish down to two,

the 85cm transparent dish, or the raven 70cm epiwatchamacallit dish.

Which do you reckon will provide the best signal? As i remember reading the raven performs very well and ive never really found a decisive answer over the transparent dishes.

cheers folks.

I would say that the 85cm transparent will probably outperform the Raven Gemini 70cm, unless it is a very poor quality one. :)

Thanks, well i think my hand maybe forced by the lack of availability of the raven dish.
So transparent it is then.

Not saying you won't find one at some retailer or other, just that supplies appear to have dried up from the factory. As a general rule of thumb though, the bigger you can get away with, the better. :)
