Does anyone have any information about what the actual reflective material is on this 10' satellite dish? It is in two halves and each half says "Federal Satellite Systems Model #300 and it has a serial number. I bought it at a garage sale10 years ago. It has beige fiberglass covering and it looks to me like the core is solid sheet metal. However, it's hard to tell what's behind the fiberglass without breaking it apart with a hammer. Is this dish made from a metal mesh or solid sheet metal? If not, then what is the reflective material in the dish? It does have a chip in the fiberglass but I still can't tell what's inside. I believe that if the core is made of large-holed metal mesh it may not work on Ku band. A search on the internet turned up nothing about this dish.
