    BSC621 BSC-621-2 C / KU Band LNBF

    Broke this away from my thread on Primestar 84E BSC-621-2. In my opinion and from experimentation I'm shelving the BSC 621-2 because this LNBF has too many trade offs in performance. A seperate quality C-Band LNBF and KU Band LNBF will work much better. On a dish smaller then 6' in diameter...

    SG-2100 vs SG-6000

    SG-6000_vs_SG-2100 This is my comparison between these two H-H Motors. Just my opinions folks. SG-2100 1.- Motor bracket distorts when bolts are tightened, this throws arc alignment off. 2.- Backlash adjuster allows hardware to come loose, allowing hardware to jam plastic drive gear...

    SG2100 Insertion loss

    Noticed that there was about a 3% reduction in Signal Quality with the motor inline. Cut the foil coil at the LNBF connector and inserted a 1 Uh choke @ .65 Amps. Signal Quality increased by 3%.
