      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.
