A couple of dishes i found on my way home from work, One is a 10ft zenith that has been idle for 18 years according to the owner.
It looks in really good shape and he seems willing to part with it.

The solid dish is an unknown to me. No one was home so i didn't dare get too close.

Anyone seen this dish before? I will try to get more pics once i get in touch with the owner.

I have seen one of those spun aluminum dishes before, but not close up.
What is unique about it is that it is a Cassegrain feed.

Cassegrain means the feedhorn/LNB is at the back of the dish, with a secondary reflector at the front. The Toroidal dishes people gush about are a sort of Cassegrain feed. They are slightly lossy compared to direct reflection dishes, but easier to maintain, plus the LNBs stay cooler, and there is that much less coax (which would matter for a direct LNA system).

Thank you for the info. A better description I could not find.

Now I hope the weather will cooperate and the owner of either dish will let it go.
