Hi dish guru's ,
Sorry but I forget to write that I have a 23cm Septum feed
Its only the 70cm part where I am lost at the moment hi
Btw depending on RFHAMDESIGN there is no need for a choke ring on the
Because the F/d = 0.45

Hi dish guru's ,
After lot of reading , vk3um-sm6fhz-ok1dfc-kl6m to name a few I don't know
what will be the best choice anymore.
I have a 4.5M (15ft) dish F/d = 0.45 (unassembled) from RFHAMDESIGN since
January waiting to get on a lift crane system ( NEKO 400A)
First intention was for 23cm only with a septum feed .... but my 4 x 38 elem
M2 on 432Mhz are a big pain in the ..
When its dry they work FB even for single yagi stations like TO2EME -
PJ7/PE1L - E44CM but asap that it rains or even when humidity gets high
SWR goes up dramatically and kicks out my AMP.
I am for now the only ON qrv on 432Mhz but limited to weather conditions.
Depending on the specs from the 4.5M dish the gain will be equal to the 4
stack except that I will have the benefit of switching H-V ,
With a motor even all in between.
Will it be possible (with min of losses) to have both 23cm (septum feed )
and 70cm mounted together ?
If YES what feed do I need to build or buy for 70cm to have both H and V
If NO what will be my best option for a 4.5M - F/d = 0.45 dish ?
