    I ended up retrieving a 10 foot (I think.. it might be 9) M/A-Com C-band mesh dish. Cant beat the price of free with a dead horse, so I took it down for the guy and just needs some minor refurbishing. The dish has alot of steel hardware that has rusted up, I am working on removing all of...

    11720 on G10r

    Is it just me, or is the signal on G10R 11720 V much better? I fired up my reciever for the first time in about a month, and my signal is now at 62%! (from the 40-45% I was getting before) I have not done a single thing to my dish, and IA5 is still coming in nice and strong too.

    Whats the deal with the CBC?

    So, apparently there is a union lockout for the CBC? I thought it odd that they were playing "This Hour has 22 Minutes" instead of the CBC Morning News... although technically news, not exactly the news I expected (then again, I dont watch CBC News, I just put that on until the Red Green Show...

    My Mini-BUD Project

    Some of you may recall that I aquired a 1.2m dish from my employer a few weeks ago, and since then it has been sitting in my gameroom, not doing anything.

    An inexpensive equipment rack

    I have been running into heat problems with my equipment.. 3 satellite receivers, and a cable box, as well as a surround sound system, and video game consoles all crammed into a small area on top of eachother, will definately heat up some. I wanted to get a rack of some sort, to keep the...

    Slaving an analog reciever....

    My analog reciever finally showed. Its a Panasonic PS-700EX w/built in Dolby Surround decoding (not prologic, but the old matrix system) Now, obviously, I am not going to use the built in sound system, but it has a audio out, which will be used instead.... Now, back to my point, I am confused...

    22kHz switch Passthru..

    Ok, I have gears turning in my head now. I am thinking about taking down the Phase 2 for now, and mounting a DBS LNBF onto my motorized dish. I would like to not use my DiSEqC 4x1, since its pretty flakey at best. What I want to do is mount a 22kHz switch on the arm of my dish, and a jumper...
