CM 4251 Feed adaptation

Hi i would like to know how to make a 7" CM4251 feed adaptation into 0.98m parabolic antenna. If someone can help me I appreciate a lot. Thanks

Yes let me explain and I apologize for my english I speak spanish as my mother language. So the problema is that I have a 98cm home made parabolic antenna and I need to make an adaptation of the CM4251 feed that fit to my 98cm parabolic antenna and I don't known how to do it. If exist another antenna type (I mean feed antenna) much better in gain etc than the CM4251 one would be better to use with mine please let me know the measure please. Thank you friend.

The original FEED is for a 6' 7' 1,8mts 2.1 mts diameter GRILL

Parabolic Antenna F/d ratio is important (te indica el tipo de iluminación necesaria par eficiencia mayor a: digamos 70 % , que es lo que se busca como objetivo)

Having the original feed wouldn't be better to copy the original GRILL

For the TV range 470-790 MHz, the mirror diameter of 0,98 meter is small. You won't get good gain from such an antenna. The maximum theoretical gain at 470 MHz for a dish diameter of 98 cm is 10.6 dBi. for a frequency of 790 MHz - 15.2 dBi. You will get exactly the same parameters using the Uda-Yaga antenna, about 1.2 meters long and about 30 cm wide.

For manufacturing, you will need an aluminum strip with a section of 15x2 mm, a profile pipe with a section of 15x15 mm, rivets or self-tapping screws, metal cutters and about 1 ... 2 hours of free time. It would be very good to purchase a matching board and a box for it. But if this is not the case, a loop of impedance matching cable will do.The CM4251 antenna is very good and beautiful, it does not need to be dismantled or destroyed. Sell it to antique lovers.

I'm sorry, friends, I didn't know how to explain myself well. I really don't have the CM4251, I wish I had it. I have a 98cm parabolic not dish type made at home and what I need is an antenna to feed it that its working range will serve me for the HD television channels that the USA transmits, which would be the ATSC standard,antenna should be the best possible because I live in Cuba and the distance is 90 miles, although I don't know if the gain should come from the antenna itself or from the parabola. I hope I have explained myself better and many thanks to the friends who help me with their comments. Greetings from Cuba.

Hello everybody I wonder if rescaling an LPDA 9EL antenna for the new American HDTV can be used to feed my 0.98cm parabolic antenna.
