Important to Note
* Values for 25m dish are tentative, although a preliminary FEM analysis has been done.
* Assuming (a) Antenna aperture efficiency due to illumination of 0.5 at 150 MHz and 0.65 at higher frequencies.
(b) Rms error of the reflecting surface = 2mm
(c) Reflectivity leakage of the wire mesh of size 6mm x 6mm x 0.55 mm size as a function of frequency, based on calculations.
** Assuming galactic background temperature of 50 x (f(MHz)/300)-2.6K, ATA type receiver but with a primary feed of 4 log-periodic antennas and ground leakage for the wire mesh of size 6mm x 6mm x 0.55mm.
