You can set 101 as the main lnb on the dish then on left side you can put another lnb next to the 101 and you can get it 97 next to it!

Here is one of the invention of one of my members of my forum did

And one of scott sponsor has this lnb

Have you always wanted to receive signal from 2 satellites, between 4 and 4.3 degrees apart, but did not want to install a motorized dish or use two satellite dishes?
This product is for you! The WS International DMX5421 LNBF is the newest addition to the WSI DMX line of C band, Ku band, & CKu band LNB and LNBFs. Use this unique LNBF to pickup satellite between 4 to 4.3 degrees apart. Excellent for Galaxy 19 & AMC 4. Use it with our WS9036 90cm Ku band satellite dish or any other 90cm Ku band satellite dish to obtain he highest signal level and quality possible from the two satellites. The DMX5421 is a universal linear Ku band LNBF. This will allow you to use it with any Ku band satellite.

but that wont work on a Channelmaster oval dish. Already tried that ;)

The CM dishes have a weird curve of the dish so the focal point is off.

The first dish I tried was the Primestar dish since it was nearby. The dish was on 91 already so I figured 91/95 or 91/87. One LNB is aimed right down the arm and the 2nd LNB is offset so the thing to remember is the offset may not give as good results as the one that is straight down the arm. Got 91 locked in but 95 wouldn't come in very well. I have a feeling it has to do with the Primestar focal points. (they seem to be closer together than normal)

My dish is pointing to 101w and I clamped a second LNB for 97w without a holder, just with round metal clamp. It works well. The motor would be nice, but just for two satellites this setup is cheaper and reliable. the lnb for 97w is squeezed tightly under the 101w.

Maybe offseting both LNBs could work, you know, instead of having one as a primary focal point and the second as an offset.

Some time ago I tried it with success, but it was a small oval directv dish a friend gave me, given it was a limited success but i could receive a fair amount of tp from 97ºW and 101ºW (only to get a "i don't like it" from my sister ¬¬ hahahaha).

Cheers
