    Question Satellite Dishes

    I understand that there are locally made 'parabolas' (criollas) and imported ones.
    Although the local stuff (6 ft) does work one could probably use a smaller size (maybe 4 ft) of the more accurate makes 'de fuera'.
    What do you recommend?
    I'd appreciate offers from sellers or any tips where to get a good dish.

    Any second hand ones around?
    Thank you.

    Thank you for the interesting link.
    Mules could carry a 6ft dish up the mountain, could they not?

    I’ve had a US made Channel Master (6ft) dish for over 10 years, still like new and its been through several hurricanes. Two years ago I bought a locally made dish. I inspected it a few weeks ago to find the fiber glass surface badly cracked (sun damage) and in need of repair. The local dish has always given 15-20% less signal strength. Be careful with the local dishes, you get what you pay for.

    There are different type of local dishes, the dishes made in Santiago ( gray ) and San Cristobal ( Sirus ) are not good at all, hardly work for a second lnb set-up ( poor mans dish )
