Hi Rob,

Any specific reason why you went with that model? A cheap used FTA receiver
(DVB-S) will do.
Biggest problem for receiving will not be the receiver, or dish or
LNB/downconverter. Biggest problem will be the Yaesu G5400 and 5500 not
being accurate enough. That eliminates most of the current satellite/ISS
users unless they have a ProSistel or Spid rotor setup ($$$).
