There is a pre-amp kit available over here for about $70 which gives 0.26dB
noise figure and 34dB gain at 1296MHz. Without resorting to cavity
designs, this sounds pretty state of the art and is been used for EME.

paypal and has variants of the design for 2.4G and 3.4G

Hello Domenico & all
Thanks for all the information. The measured F/D ratio works out to
0.375, therefore a patch would be appropriate. As mentioned earlier I would be
content to just be able to receive EME (for now). For transmitting no doubt a
different feed would be needed. Currently I am looking around for a preamp.
