is that 2 chaparal orthos in the pic? im assuming a dielectric is needed in one ?
Yep...2 Chaparral orthos with a plate in the upper one. This dish has a left hand mounted actuators so the linear can see a bit farther west and the circular can see a bit farther East. I can see down to Express AM44 at 11 West.
I wouldn't know as I have never played with a wideband Corotor. I deleted the message above this because I thought you were talking about mounting 2 wideband Corotors in siamese configuration...will the chaparrel corotor II wideband feed perform the same way as your setup?
will the chaparrel corotor II wideband feed perform the same way as your setup?
the corotor wideband feed is a different solution to the problem the siamese ortho setup solves. the main differences between it and the siamese are...
- the siamese setup can feed more than one reciever at a time.
- the wideband corotor needs a reciever capable of setting 4 polarizer positions.
umm and i think pendragon has stated that an orthomode feed performs better than a corotor feed. i thinks thats about all i can think of.
as for performin better, what difference would i see if i where to use one of this bad boy feeds?
