Dear Fred ( KF0AK)

Very interesting:
What is the earth station dish antenna diameter and F/D that will 
match the MW patch antenna you are constructing for Eagle.
With the day of increased interference approaching, the narrower 
band width of a patch versus a helical feed may be needed.
The question: is the same antenna good for P3e earth station?
If Stan Woods say's it good that's all I need.
I would like a price per unit with Stan's TLC all over it.
