Tom et al,
What are the size and spacing of the holes of a typical TVRO dish?
I have a six foot, 900 MHz grid dish that I overlayed with 1/4 inch
galvanized hardware cloth and would like to know the wind loading at various
wind speeds.
Any ideas?

This may have already been addressed? A TVRO mesh dish becomes a solid
object at winds around 35 to 40 MPH. This will vary with pressure and
humidity(usually an inverse relationship).
