From: (Paul Chominski)

Hi Joe,
I am ready for 10 GHz for next weekend. My frequency calibration should be
within +/- 10 kHz.  I have already skeds with AA5C and W5LUA.
Unfortunately shape of my 8 ft TVRO dish is to bad for 10 GHz. At the moment
I am getting only 7 dB Sun noise, 0.7 dB Moon noise and 4.2 dB cold sky to
ground. Moving feed  1.5 cm ( 0.5 WL ) along Y-axis  I am getting 6 to 7 dB
of Sun noise. This mean that focus is not a single point. This is big
difference compare to my previous 10 ft dish.
