If you checked on Downeast and SSB's web pages you will have discovered
that they both have or plan for 10 GHz P3D down convertors.  I have one
pre-ordered from Downeast when they begin production.  I certainly agree
that we should patronize our ham-microwave suppliers.  But its only
typically "ham" to scrounge or build our own.

If you have the time, skill, or willing to acept the risk then go for it.
If not, then DEM, SSB, Kuhne, Parabolic, etal offer a good selection.

See you on x-band :-)
