    Attaching a Ku LNBF to a C band Feedhorn

    I need help figuring out how to attach a Ku LNBF to the side of a C band Feedhorn. I know to put it in the 3 o'clock position. I see some people just attach it to the side of the feedhorn. Some people cut the feedhorn. Which is the best? I tried attaching it to the side but couldn't find a satellite. Show me yours. Photos would be helpful.

    Linear or Circular?

    Linear - FTA - Horz / Vert
    Circular - DishNet/DirecTV/BellVu - LeftHand / RightHand

    I have only used a Circular LNB to do this, you do not have to account for polarity since it uses a "circular" pattern.

    A Linear Ku LNB strapped to a Scalar Ring may be difficult, as with a C / Ku Feedhorn, the allignment must be spot on.

    I think it would be do-able, it would be compromised system however.

    Humm... Guess I will use a different feedhorn setup for a C band and Ku I was gonna order one of those combination ones with no servor motor but I hear people here saying it doesn't work. So I didn't order it to begin with. Then I seen some lnbfs strapped to the side of the feedhorn and assumed it was a Ku.

    So I Directv or Dish Network lnb will work on the side of the feedhorn? 3 o'clock position?

    I guess I can try that till I find a c/ku band feedhorn. I had one on my old dish that had c/ku and dbs but it never worked on dbs and I don't remember where I put it.
