Hello Everyone.
I am new to this hobby so forgive me if i ask a dumb question.
I would like to test the 123.0°W Galaxy 10R Ku bird, at the moment i have a superdish which is aimed at 118.7/119/110. I have a spare universal lnb. My question is would the Universal Lnb work if i would like to get 123 and also is 30'' the minimum i need to reciever 123 Galaxy 10R or would a regular 18'' do it?
Thanks

18" will not do it. 30" will work but not well on weaker transponders. G-10 is just about out of fuel and drifting alot now. 11720 has been a pain for most of us with G10 dishes.

If you can mount the universal LNB on the super dish then you can try it, the 30" dish should be able to pickup a few channels, usually for FTA you want a 31" dish or larger.

EDIT - Tvropro beat me :)

Thanks for the quick reply guys.
Yes i was able to mount a Linear Lnb on it before so the universal shouldn't be a problem i would like to know if i can get the 123 off same dish which gives 119/118.7 at the same time.
Once again
Thanks a lot :)

Don't the superdish 105 have a ku linear lnbf? I always thought you could just remove the DP-34 switch and use the lnbf straight to the receiver. I know the 110 and 119 lnbf's are circular polarity.

It looks strong to me (But I am using a 1.2 Meter dish :)), it's stronger than 11800 for me. The problem if you mount the universal LNB on the side (Try to get all three satellites on the same dish) is you will loose more signal and with a 30" dish you don't have much signal to give away. You can try it but I am not sure about your results.

EDIT - The 118.7 LNB is a lower frequency LNB (Same range as linear FTA) but it has a circular polarization.

11966 on my 85 cm is giving me 89 quality on my Pansat.
