    Did anything good ever come of this? I believe you and Anole were plotting and scheming...

    We did brainstorm the problem this summer.
    Phlat came up with an excellent suggestion to make it track/work.
    .
    Even if it did track, I'm not sure it makes a lot of sense for Ku, nor is it big enough for great C band...?
    .
    Absent any follow up, I would steer clear of this dish.
    The wonderfully stiff H-H mount should probably outfitted with some other dish.

    I don't have any update, still haven't got around to giving it another go.

    Sure would like to find someone that knows the backstory of these oddballs, and/or had installed some.

    Thanks for posting that beavs, never seen that one before.

    Some more pictorial evidence showing the feed support on the left side (opposite of the way I found and reinstalled mine). ;)

    I'm sure there were other factors but wonder how much the "in excess of $1,000,000" BV invested in researching and developing the Spoon hastened their demise?
