  This is the antenna that I used for 1296 MHz EME from 1982 to 2000

It is a 2.4 M dish with an F/D ratio of 0.6, and utilises a W2IMU feedhorn for circular polarisation

An Azimuth / Elevation mount with motors driving threaded rods is used, and fully automatic tracking of the Moon or Sun is achieved using an old CBM 64 computer with a home made interface and software

The RX pre amp is mounted directly on the feed to minimise losses, and the TX power is fed to the horn using LDF 5-50 Coaxial cable
