    Tried a sample.... Your mileage may vary, but in my testing, this LNBF came in dead last place in every benchmark. Nice small size, but it is at a cost in performance.

    It can resolve down to 2 degree spacing. This would be the only application that I would consider. Innovative mount, but unfortunately.... proprietary.

    The flat dishes are interesting technology. Had a Korean manufacturer at our facility a few years ago for testing. The gain is too low for FTA satellites in North America and the single satellite reception limited the interest by the subscription providers.

    A distributor in South Florida had the "invisible" dish several years ago. They company closed and the dish never caught on. Would be interesting to see how the materials held up after years of UV. Still invisible?

    No translucent nor square dishes in North America, so far as I know.
    They're big enough to use in GB, but generally too small for here.

    I remember the Squariels in the UK, from "B Sky B" I think.

    Alternate to "SKY" at the time.

    That's right BSB British Satellite Broadcasting, as it was at the time had the squarial. I had one it,thought it was great. Not long after Sky bought them and that was that. Another classic VHS vs Beta war IMHO. BSB didn't suffer "sparkles" like Sky did, something long forgotten now. Now we have pixelation and bit starving :(
