Where online can I buy a c-band lnbf that looks like/similar to the Xtreme .3 lnbf and the FSKU-2V ku ones? I want to put one on a new c-band dish that I'm buying. Thanks!

you got me too Mike. I always thought all C-Band LNB's needed the scaler rings on it.

No, regular cband lnbf if there is one. I'm upgrading to 6 feet Sadoun dish from the 5 ft dish I've had in time for baseball season. I have a chap feedhorn I've had for 15 years or so, but the c-band lnb is 35 degrees and the servo motor needs to be replaced. Ku lnb is 1.2. If no lnbf like this is made, I'll probably buy the 13 degree lnbf I see on EBay that should fit this dish.

So you just want digital/analog access from a typical C/Ku setup?

I buy from Dave's frequently!

If your current feedhorn isn't C/Ku - C/Ku Band Feed Horn $150: http://www.daveswebshop.com/rp3.shtml

Servo $13: http://www.daveswebshop.com/servomotor.shtml

Astrotel High Stability 15 degree C Band LNB $99: http://www.daveswebshop.com/otherlnb.shtml

Astrotel 15 Degree C Band LNB $35: http://www.daveswebshop.com/15_deg.shtml

Astrotel High Stability .5 Ku LNB $99: http://www.daveswebshop.com/servomotor.shtml

Astrotel .5 Ku Wide Band LNB $55: http://www.daveswebshop.com/otherlnb.shtml

Astrotel .5 dB Ku Band LNB $42: http://www.daveswebshop.com/ku_5.shtml

Thanks everyone for the help. I guess there isn't one that looks like ku. I went with the 15 degree lnb for the feedhorn.

On Dave's site he has a couple of C-Band LNBs listed.

Astrotel PLL 125 KHz stability 25 degree C Band LNB
Astrotel 500 KHz High Stability 15 degree C Band LNB

I'm unfamiliar with the "KHz" rating. What's that mean?

You'd think the 15 degree would be more expensive, but its not ????

Lower stability numbers are better. Also the 25 degree is Phase Locked Loop (PLL) which is always more expensive.

Mike,
Pete has been testing a c/ku lnb in the FTA/MPEG2 Equipment Review Area. The only thing is (for me) it's a Universal ku, I would prefer a standard ku. Pete says the manufacturer is going to make it with a standard ku in the near future. And spindocter, a member here, has some cone feedhorns that should fit it and hopefully improve the gain. Don't know if that's what you're looking for, but it might be close.

Thanks. I too will be interested when it becomes a standard one. I'll check out the review.
