As I'm refurbishing my 1.5 and soon a 1.2, I dug out some data sheets from way back. I also have the installation manual for the 1.5m. If anyone wants that, please PM me.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The 1.5m IRTE reflector is still about the best there is.

How about the 1.8m IRTE?
Any good like Channel Master?
What would be a fair second-hand price?

How about the 1.8m IRTE?
If it is assembled from 4 segments, than performance in Ku maybe not as good as solid dishes do.

I wouldn't buy a four piece IRTE 1.8m unless it was really cheap.

What is considered real cheap?
The dish will be mainly for C-band, but I have a PF Ku-band LNB too and would like maximum performance for Ku-band too.

To understand what you mean by that, I should have a comparison with another 180 cm dish.
Why don't you just tell me what you mean by 'two thirds of a dish'.
I'm guessing that you mean that the 180 cm IRTE dish is just 2/3 of what you should/could expect, so effectively: it's just a 120 cm dish.

A 1.2m does not given the performance of two thirds of a 1.8m, it would be just under two thirds from a mental calculation.

Well, long story short I'm not going to buy it.
