Hello johnwilliam1 from the UK, I am PSB from the UK (Now living here in the US)
WELCOME to the SatelliteGuys.US FTA forum!
I guess you are talking about the below Andrews feedhorn for use with off-set dish. As mentioned below its very important for the feedhorn be matched to the SHAPE and SIZE of your dish rather than the make of the dish.
"Taking a 1.2m dish as an example. A 40mm LNB may only illuminate 1.1m of dish
area or perhaps 1.3m of dish area (i.e. including noise round the edges)
But with a matched feedhorn, exactly 1.2m of dish area is illuminated. This feedhorn
is for offset dishes and can also be used on other makes of offset dish."
