I know the focus of this group has been 89 degrees west, but some of us are starting to re-point our "other" dishes from AMC-8 to AMC-18.

On the FAQ they put out there is a question about 3 meter dish users. The answer is "You could give it a shot." So, I'm wondering who has done that and what results they're getting. Here in northern Wisconsin we are a little slow. Our spring planning is usually governed by groundhog sightings. And, we did have nine inches of snow this morning in our area (it is already gone), and some ski hills are still open.

Our dish is 3.1 meters and in pretty good condition. It is working fine at 139, but I know the margins are tighter at 105. Three things you might share:

What diameter dish? (and maybe LNB? what's critical? degrees K, LO stability?)
How did you aim it? (spectrum analyzer, other meter, receiver?)
What kind of Eb/No readings are you seeing?
