Hi all,
Setting up a 1.8 dish with Inverto quad and have a choice of 2 feedhorns from a friend, which would you pick? I think the Andrews is a Vsat horn.
cheers

distance is an issue here, can only take one
Ask friend to send you both, and after tests send one back.
But, in 2 words, feedhorn #1 is for prime-focus dish, and feedhorn #2 is for an offset.

For Primesat 1.8m dish use the 1st one, it is for prime focus and that is the type of your dish

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Just to let you all know I settled on the flat scalar feed and so far so good!
Thanks
