Does anyone use a 1.8 meter dish on 99w c band? I know about the 4 to 6 degree interference from other satellites. You would gain 2db gain from a 1 meter to 1.2 meter. What are your best results? I am looking for a stationary mount for one also.

I have an offset 6' Prodelin pointed at 99W for C band. It works pretty well except that mux with KRBK, Movies, MeTV and the other TP with the Virgin Island mux is not as reliable as it was 2 years ago. Most likely from 97W or 101W interference, but that's only a theory on my part. The ABC feeds with the 9/10 FEC are fine.

I'm using a Titanium C1-PLL and a conical scalar mounted to a homemade bracket to match the original feed horn. I have 3 similar dishes setup in this manner.

When the weather gets nicer here I plan to tweak it a bit with my Dr. HD meter and could give detailed test results at that time.
