I've been using the DSS dish with a highly modified DSS feedhorn for 10G
for a couple of years now. These are very popular with the 10G and Up
contesters and VHF contest rovers. You can see some of my info on

The small 19 inch Direct TV type dish antennas work very well on the
10GHz amateur radio band (I have been using one for the past two
years for portable operations). There are plans on the internet for
modifing the original feed for use at 10Ghz also (I am using a
different feed horn to feed my dish). The antennas also work on the
24GHz amateur radio band. I think some amateurs have been able to
use the LNB on the orginal feed and turn them into a LNA (preamp for
RX). I do know a couple of amateurs that have used the older banana
shaped "Primstar" dish antennas for a portable antenna for 2.3, 3.4,
5.7, and 10 GHz.
