Does the new Slimline dish work any better than the old style Ka dishes? I recently got one and wondered if it was worth swapping them out. Other than appearance, Any difference? Thanks.

Before you switch record readings, then when you setup slimline compare new with old. Post your results. Keep old AT-9 in case it works better.

I know my slimline works better then the 3LNB it replaced. I could do no better then lower 90's on most 101, 119,110 transponders. I now have upper 90's and 100's.

With a larger reflector than the Phase 3, it could have higher gain. It depends on how much of the dish the feed horn sees. Likewise, the AT-9 *could* have a bit more gain than the Slimline. It probably wouldn't mean much in terms of rain fade in either case, however.
