400cm and 500cm Mesh Dishes

Post by tek2000 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 8:52 pm

Are any members here interested in oversized mesh antennas?

We can have 400cm and 500cm mesh dishes fabricated, but before we allocate any capital to this project, we want to gauge the demand for such a product.

These oversized dishes would be useful in places like Alaska, Hawaii and northern Canada where C band signals experience substantial attenuation.

Thanks for you feedback.

You could probably sell them to commerical entities such as local affiliates, radio station operators, ethnic channel operators, etc.

If I had the room, I would install a 16 footer just to see my neighbor's reaction... :mrgreen:

Hi guys,

We have fabricated about two dozen 400cm (13.25ft) mesh antennas. We used a "double" frame for extra strength and 8 braces from behind to support the panels. It requires a 5 inch outer diameter pole mount.

This is a heavy-duty mesh antenna and weighs nearly 250 lbs. We will be posting pictures very soon.

It will retail for around $1000 USD + shipping.
