Satellite Dish

Parabolic microwave antenna used to transmit and receive satellite signals. On the downlink, the dish collects data or video signals from orbiting satellites and focuses them to where a feed horn collects them and passes the signal on to be amplified and sent to a satellite receiver or IRD. The term is derived from the shape of the reflector surface but also represents the entire antenna subsystem, including the feed horn and antenna structure.
