Hi Bob.
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.
