A full dish) is the Arecibo radio telescope located in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, whose 305 m (1,001 ft) dish is fixed in the ground. It was designed by engineer Bill Gordon (d. 2010). The suspension system was designed by George and Helias Doundoulakis, for which Helias Doundoulakis received a patent along with assignee William J. Casey, ex-Central Intelligence Agency Director under President Ronald Reagan. The antenna beam is steerable (by means of a moving receiver) within about 20° of the zenith.

Since the wavelengths being observed with these types of antennas are so long, the "reflector" surfaces can be constructed from coarse wire mesh such as chicken wire. At shorter wavelengths “dish” style radio telescopes predominate. The angular resolution of a dish style antenna is determined by the diameter of the dish expressed as a number of wavelengths of the electromagnetic radiation being observed. This dictates the dish size a radio telescope needs for a useful resolution. Radio telescopes that operate at wavelengths of 3 meters to 30 cm (100 MHz to 1 GHz) are usually well over 100 meters in diameter.

A spherical reflector does not have a single focal "point", however, the Arecibo antenna is a three-reflector variety of Gregorian telescope, and uses its secondary and tertiary reflectors to focus the radio waves to a single point. Aperture efficiency eA is a catchall variable which accounts for various losses that reduce the gain of the antenna from the maximum that could be achieved with the given aperture. The major factors reducing the aperture efficiency in parabolic antennas are:.     Feed spillover - Some of the radiation from the feed antenna falls outside the edge of the dish and so doesn't contribute to the main beam.
