Hi! I was told this dish is made in Canada, it is even written on the face of the dish. Can somebody share information about it?
Antenna is very light (less than 20 kilos), it has working area 1778x1972mm, offset angle 25.6*, F/D ratio = 0.5.

Looks like a generic C band satellite dish. There were lots of companies making them in the 1980s. C band systems sold for several thousand dollars so there was good money in making the dishes and they were fairly easy to fabricate. Can't say I recognize the brand but there were several local companies making them around here and, I suspect, everywhere else. The vast majority of them stopped production many years ago.

Thanks for that @ExDilbert One day I will install it and try in Ku-band. Luckily I have also certainly Ku-band antenna, so will be able to compare the results of the performance.
