Need some help in adding a motor to my stationary 1.2m Ku dish.I have an orthomode feedhorn on it and it is powered and feeds into a EMP-Centauri 5/4 multi switch.I want to use a H-H motor to move the dish with USAL protocol.How can I get the signal to the motor without replacing the feedhorn currently being used?Thanks
Consider inserting a quality 3GHz splitter ( 2 port / 2 port power passing) at the STB. One coax leg to the motor and the other coax leg to the multi-switch. Slightly higher insertion loss, but simple to install and less coax to run. Maybe a wash in the total attenuation.
