The dish is 5.4 m diameter with and f/d of 0.5 and is fed with a full size W2IMU horn.

The reflector is stainless steel woven mesh with a hole size approx 3mm, and the profile is accurate to 3mm and could be useable up to 10 GHz.

An Az/El mount and PC running F1EHN's software with VE1ALQ's interfaces are used for tracking. A medium sized prop pitch gearbox drives the azimuth axis and a satellite jack drives the elevation axis.
