Just noticed that the one just posted, and the one on the old magazine cover pic I have saved, are both mounted 180 degrees opposite of mine (I put it up the same way I found it). Hmmmm...
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?
