I'm still using my 2.3m PF dish. Around 50% of QSOs are by CW. 
On digital the smallest worked so far is G4BAO on QRA64 with a 1.9m dish. 200W in the shack, my end. Same at John's end.
Smallest on CW is probably 2.4m, although I think, but not sure, I worked SM5LE on CW with his 2.2m dish. I need to check my log. Was it that long ago?
2.3m is very effective on 13cm and up, even for CW.

73 de Sam, G4DDK

> For some of you that actually are operating on 1296 could tell me the minimum size for a prime focus dish or offset dish to operate on CW? after you have worked the big guys?? Would anything less than 10 FT/3M be worst looking at or not??.
