: Donald, : First you need a satilite dish. 10' is common in the old style dishes. Do not use a fiberglass dish, it warps in the sun and therefore loses it's parabola. The solid or mesh metel type will work. If you use more than one dish, they must be the same. There are ways too use the feed horns and matbe the reciever on some of them. My brother, myself and Chris are building one now. It has four dishes so far with a plan of twelve. The first four will be up by the end of July. If you want to e-mail me I will give you the detailed specs of this project.
