26cm Ku Band "dish"


#1

I came across this little guy on Alibaba. It appears to be made by BWEI, with a model number of BSS-180P. The image of the “dish” with the radome removed is quite curious to me, and wonder if someone with antenna design experience has any insights. Here are two pics and the posted specs:

It is a pretty flimsy setup. search back to 2018 … I ordered one , @syed also experimented with them.
(search 26cm)

it sounded real good… didn’t work with the signals from the satellite using the older mode from early 2018. but it might be good to dig it out of my basement and try again. a litte expensive … about $60 delivered

Thanks. I missed that part the first time I went through that thread (was focused on horn performance data at the time)
