Default Sat Dish

Hey
I got an offer for 40€ an 75cm Dish or 80€ and 80cm Dish.
Sounds good... I see on Youtube someone use this Antenna: Log Periodic Antennas| PCB antennas from wa5vjb for receiving "interesting Stuff". I have also an LNA home who works.
So when i order a Printed Antenna and mount on the Dish i can Reveive interestind stuff from Satellite?!

Can i do the same like this guy (on my case just receiving Signals: RS232 über Funk mit dem Wi.232EUR-R Funkmodul, serielle RS232 Funkübertragung mit hoher Reichweite bis zu 1,6km ????

What sort of "interesting stuff" are you hoping to hear? I'm familiar with those antennas. They're neat for what they are, but they are not ideal for using as a dish feed.

What frequency, gain, and noise figure is the LNA?

Off hand, I'm going to say no. An 80 cm dish is pretty small. Without knowing what satellite you're wanting to monitor, there's no way of telling for sure whether it would work.

Sat who are made for receiving with a Handheld.
Normaly an 80cm is more than ok for Public TV.
