I was listening only, having made some more improvements since the DUBUS 3cm contest weekend, and I now believe I have the dish structure and focus as good as I can get them. Still using a non optimised feed but a new one is under way. I will now start the process of converting the manually controlled “ lash up” into a fully usable system, including a PA..
I was only on for Sunday but in the short window that I have I heard HB9Q, OK1KIR, OZ1LPR, all big signals especially Peter, OZ1LPR. I could just copy SM6CKU and partially copy IZ1DJP and SA6BUN. Moon noise was 0.9dB . I know there are more improvements that I can make to feed and preamp NF. 
I’m glad everyone enjoyed it and the kind comments are appreciated, (but its not really a lot of work!) 
I was also delighted to work ZS6EME during the week on 13cm ssb and today on CW IK5QLO with an excellent signal.
