Antenna Picture

 

The parabolic dish is shipped in four individual sections as shown below. Each section is constructed from C/Ku band mesh supported by a rigid but light weight aluminum frame. The mesh will reflect all incident microwave energy if the holes in the surface are less than 1/10th of a wavelength.

4 Dish Sections
