    The invacom has a quad linear/circular LNBF. Love it.
    But........
    By chance does anyone make a quad linear/circular UNIVERSAL lnbf that will grab lower/upper bands?

    I know I'm asking a lot, but doesn't hurt to ask. It would be nice to be able to pick up every signal possible with my brought back to life USALS KU system. I mostly have fixed dishes on all the popular KU birds, so the only real purpose of my USALS KU is to be able to pick up everything else.

    I ordered a Quad Universal LNBF, but that leaves me out of the birds that have circular polarities. I may hook in a 4 degree side lobe for Circular, which would probably work, as those signals tend to be very strong.

    An LNB-changer (LNB-revolver) for several LNBs, like Trust and RimaNTSS and several others made, is not enough for you?

    The original designer to this modification is a gentleman who goes by the name of Lambda, he is making another one at the moment for a new project on his new Laminas 2.7m antenna he is adding a laser to his next one,

    The modification in the video below was on his old 2,4 now sold.

    very cool, and definitely interesting, but i have to wonder why so many LNBFs. I can see the need for 4 of them: C-Linear, C-Circular, Universal Ku Linear and Universal Ku Circular. Ok maybe also a few variations of Ka (which I'm not familiar with at all), and maybe the exotic 4.5-4.8 GHz C-Band (which exists in Linear and in Circular).

    But the 2nd video shows what looks like 5 Ku LNBFs...

    Hi yes KA band four LNB is needed to cover the whole spectrum I am unsure if he hunts extended c band but he could do.
