dish is too small

The T55 is the equivalent of a 20" dish so its too small to get most KU
The T90 is the equivalent of a 36" (I think)

The number after the T is just how many Cm's it is so doing a metric to English conversion you get...less than 24 :)

I agree

I have a t90 and a t55 and you need a t90 to get t5. t90 is the equivalent of a 38 inch dish.
