    Wow, that's an amazing restoration! I'm always sorry to see how mistreated old satellite dishes can get. Far better to restore if possible, than trash them.

    rodrigocn,

    I can attest to the favorable responses here about this dish.
    I had one for 11 years never a problem. Was my first BUD in 1991.
    I have plans this summer to install it on my KTI mount. The original Radio Shack mount is un salvageable and the KTI dish isn't perfectly parabolic anymore.
    Enjoy.

    John
