Generally you're better off with a larger dish, as long as the feed is matched to the f/D of the dish. Ku-only dishes tend to be offset designs with a f/D around 0.6. C-band dishes tend to be prime-focus with a f/D around 0.35. If you decide to try the 1.8m dish, just make sure the LNBF has a similar f/D and you should be fine.
