    LNBF skew on c-band motorized dish setup

    Hi experts, I have recently had to replace my LNBF on my c-band dish due to failure from a lighting strike nearby. I got a new C1 Titanium PLL LNBF. I just want to confirm the skew so I understand this correctly. At the highest point in the arc I should set the skew degrees to 0 or 12 o-clock...

    G16 reflections from adjacent birds?

    Thanks for the advice. Sounds like that is what it is. Previously I believe I had that problem before. I would get channels from an adjacent bird while I was pointed at G16. I'm going to see if I can do some fine turning shortly. I find it a bit finicky to try and stabilize the LNB in the ring...

    G16 reflections from adjacent birds?

    Hi experts, I recently had to replace my receiver and LNB from a lighting strike that was very close to home. It cooked the receiver and LNBF. It was a good excuse to update the equipment. I bought a new receiver but when I hooked it up I wasn't getting any signal. So I bought a PLL Titanium...

    Tracking 101 and 105

    I have a 10 foot C-band dish that I'm having a problem receiving 101 an 105. I have set it up and it tracks the arc nicely from 83 to 139. I'm looking for 101 and 105. Currently I am have no problems receiving 97, 99,103 and 107. Most of what I watch is on G16 and G19. Out of curiosity I...

    DVB-T signal meter

    So I purchased one of those DVB-T OTA signal meters for pure interest. It was $13 bucks and I got it the other day. I know that DVB-T signals aren't used in North America its ATSC. Even though they advertise ATSC on the sellers website. I have one OTA yagi pointed to my local signal hill. We...

    LNB Cover and wind

    Sounds good. I'll give it a try. I was thinking about the electrical tape just to snug it up to keep it from disconnecting. It's done it once or twice now. You wouldn't believe the wind here. It can unscrew anything. It's amazing.

    LNB Cover and wind

    Thanks guys. I always thought the elements and UV would beat the SH*t out of the LNBF.

    LNB Cover and wind

    Hi, I have a 10' Unimesh where I live. Its very windy. I'm down to 2 of the twist in clips that hold the LNB cover on. I've taken it off in the meantime to prevent it from blowing away. Any ideas as to where or what I could use as replacement clips? Also The wind seems to be loosening the F...

    Digicipher II - Unscrambled channels

    I have been watching this thread and it has me curious.. I have a friend who works in the broadcast industry and has a "spare" dsr 4400 that I might be able to get my hands on. What kind of things come on in FP mode? I have a 10' unimesh setup for c-band on FTA but never considered adding a dsr...

    Anik F1R Radio channels

    I did a blind scan of Anik F1R last night and noticed quite a few new radio channels on this bird. They are scrambled. They have really cryptic descriptions. Anyone know what these stations might be? Sirius?

    LNB fine tuning with meter

    Update - After tinkering with the BSC 621 I am pretty sure its toast. Using the meter I am only now getting a 8-12% quality lock on 83W which was coming in about 78% before on C-Band. I have spent quite a bit of time trying to adjust the skew and focal point without success. After reading up on...

    LNB fine tuning with meter

    Thanks that's what I was suspecting. Next chance I get I think I'll use the meter to peak it back on C-band is that's where I plan to use it. After reading some more I did notice the focal point differences between C-band and KU LNBF's.

    LNB fine tuning with meter

    Hello Experts, I have a question regarding fine tuning an LNB. I am trying to fine tune the LNB for C/KU band reception on a 10 foot unimesh dish. The dish tracks tracks the arc nicely from 83W - 135W. I have had the setup on C-band working okay for the past several years with a few different...
