An 8 or 10 foot dish can see a few things up there. William-Bell has books on the subject. Got one some time ago and took it to work (we had several engineers and techs working in microwave) and it got stolen from there. Remember that an 8 foot dish has about a 2deg. beam. This means that you will not be able to locate things very well. Good luck. Bob May
