60cm Aluminium Antenna Dish


I have obtained a supply of spun aluminium dishes, 590mm diameter, 119mm deep, 1.2mm thick (18swg). This is an f/d ratio of 0.31, and is virtually identical to the dish described in Oscar News issue No. 100, Amsat Journal, Amsat-DL Journal, and many others as A 60 cm S-Band Dish Antenna.

The dish makes an ideal receiver as being very deep, the low f/d ratio ensures negligible side-lobes with typical amateur feeds, and thus low noise pick-up.

The dish is supplied unpainted, and undrilled, but is degreased.
