Hello Brian
Here is this information on the feed, Ricks Satellite is selling this part:
Size: 22x21x14
Weight: 1.5 Kg
Frequency Range: C-Band 3.7-4.2 GHz
Frequency Range: Ku-Band 10.7-12.75GHz
VSWR: C-Band 1.6:1 / Ku-Band 1.4:1
Isolation: C-Band 18dB / Ku-Band 25dB
RF Ports: C-Band WR229 / Ku-Band WR75


Feed works with f/D of .30 to .40

I been looking at the Chaparral BULLSEYE 2 but this feed is twice the money and not sure if it will go with my Laux beta-9 dish, the F/D ratio on my dish is about .31
Regards.

It should work fine with your dish FD. It is within the range. I don't remember if the DP-4 FD ratio was fixed or adjustable. Not as popular as the Bullseye, so didn't run into them in the field too often. I do recall the Bullseye 2 had a higher FD, but it is adjustable. The dual Ortho feed design does introduce a minimal loss, but the DP-4 has the reputation of being better than other brands! :)

Thanks for your comments Brian, one question, when Chaparral says the F/D is adjustable, how is this adjustment done, do you know?
Regards.
