Hi guys
Been out of satellite for quite some time now (since sky digital start red and lost all interest )
Now looking to start back int it looking to find a prime focus dish with polar mount and actuator can go to 1.2 but that’s max for now
No idea on reciever or positioner as yet think just ku-band for now till I’m back in the game
Look forward to what you have for sale

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
No disrespect to Pipedream but quite a few decent dishes of around that size, and located in the Southern UK, crop up regularly on the ebay, Gumtree, & Sphock (etc.) websites.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The smallest prime focus Ive used has been a 50cm cassegrain type, but it was years ago.

Getting an original C120 flange LNB to fit on any feed these days will be your main task rather than sourcing a reflector.

I just realised, I have a Precision 1.2m prime focus dish down the side of a shed. It comes with the original feed support arms and a Precision Ku-Band feed. I also have some brand new Invacom C120 LNB's and a couple of used Inverto C120 LNB's.

There were two of these dishes but I sold one, the one that is left has some of the paint coming off the rear mounting ring but it can be rubbed down and painted easily enough.
I would need to check if the dish has any dents or dings in it as it has been down the side of the shed for a few years now.

I cleaned them up at one point and sold one then put the other one away, it will probably need another clean up.
Couple of pics attached.

Note:
There is no mount or ground stand included.
However, you could probably cobble up some type of bracket up to get a 1.2m onto a DiSEqC motor if the dish is to be installed in a sheltered location?

Ideally, a Precision polar mount or a Jaeger 1224 would be the preferred mounting option but these are quite scarce nowadays and generally sell for decent wad.

Hi Chris,

Where in Yorks are you?
I have a few CM 1m or 1.2m with polar mount and jack, not sure if jacks work though

Yes, a blast from the past, we have "scopus" to thank for the details about the Unicorn dish.

The first time a Unicorn dish came to my attention was way back in either the late 1990's or early 2000's when there was an article in "What Satellite" magazine featuring a Unicorn dish on a Jaeger 1224 motor.
If I recall correctly, they described it as a "Reference 1.2m setup" or something along those lines?

Unfortunately, I binned all of my "Wot Sats" some time ago otherwise I would have dug out the article and uploaded it to the forum.
