I am looking to upgrade to a 90 cm dish motorized dish with a dual KU/C band LNB, I am on a limited budget under $250 so any advice would be helpful. I am currently using a 76 cm KU band system.

AZFAN welcome your first post! However you've been here a while ;)
I do not think that 90cm dish will be good enough for C-band, unless your location is in Europe.

Agreed. There have been some that have experimented with C-Band on a 90cm dish in NA, but just for bragging rights. You will not have any kind of reliable C-Band reception on a 90cm dish. Especially with a C/ku; I would go with C only LNBF if I were even to attempt it.

Ku should be reliable on a 90cm dish and motor combo as long as it is set up properly. I woudn't bother with C-band with anything smaller than 2.4m. Sometimes my 3m dish is too small!

Try Skyvision, they are just down the road from me... Think they still sell C-band dishes.
