2,4m offset dish -

 

I have available 2,4m offset dish made by Prodelin USA, which I am expecting use for EME in 6 - 3 - 1,2cm bands. From beginning I had available just dish and back frame for dish fix mount. Choice MW bands are requiring very high accuracy of dish position during pointing to the Moon. I have build small mast, azimuth frame and elevation bearings. All accuracy is focusing mainly for 24 GHz operation use. On following pictures you can see the mechanical part of dish rotating and elevation.

 

Main mast for dish, snail gear will be on the top Frames arrived from hot Zink anticorrosion application
Frame ready for bearing install Frame with bearing detail
Bearings and shafts Frame with detail of elevation
Frame and 36" actuator for elevation Frame - elevation and dish cross sections
Frame - elevation and dish cross sections and 1st quadrant of the dish Frame - elevation and dish cross sections and 1st quadrant of the dish
