Sometimes its just cheaper to get a small KU dish system with a Horizon to Horizon motor drive and use a 22Khz switch to switch between the C band dish and the KU band dish.

Yes, good point. I'm putting up a 6' mesh dish, that must be 10 years old. I'm hoping that the Ku works OK on that one too. I often wonder, if you decided to repaint the dish, would the mesh holes get smaller, with each coat? Would this cause a better reflection of Ku band signals?
Nope. You will need to use unusual paint with very high %% of metal particle in it.
Perhaps you could use aluminum foil to cover all the reflector ?
There was old test if C reflector is good for Ku band: if normal pencil wouldn't go thru holes.

I think that I'm good. I'll update, when the whole system is in place.
