Making low-cost, light-weight, portable C/Ku-band dish antenna

#1
Dear Dishtracking friends,

Me and my Facebook friends are toying with the idea of making a semi-compact, low-cost, light-weight and portable 5 feet (152.4 centimetre) C/Ku-band prime-focus antenna. This is primarily meant to be for home/domestic use. It can be easily made and used by satellite/dth hobbyists and enthusiasts.

We will post the steps to make it, materials & tools needed, pics of complete assembled dish. Also we will review the signal strength/quality, performance of the antenna, limitations etc. The designing process has begun and test prototype is being made.
[ The total cost excluding LNB, RG6 co-axial wire, F-connectors should not be more than Rs 600. ]

This will be handy to people who stay on rent as it can be dismantled easily and carried elsewhere or kept away packed. The reception will be quite decent almost comparable to professionally built system.
So keep watching... We will present this soon. (Thanks to all my friends who are fed up of devotional channels and inspired me to make this.)

The assembled reflector without the stand and LNB arm will look like this:
