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."

What's the weather like today in the UK?

Watched the Coventry v Stoke soccer game on Monday and it was VERY foggy and cold looking!

Cheers and Beers!
