Thanks Sathish bro,

Yes you are right. This is a 4 feet (120cm) dish and is good for people who have space crunch on their home terraces or cannot fix a big bulky dish.
Another good thing is the ease with which it can be assembled/disassembled with no bulky parts.
The results of this dish amazed me. The signal quality and picture/sound stability is more than expected.
More details will be covered in this thread later.
