This dish has not been online in about 10 years.

The wires run into my buddy's old trailer, but the old reciver (Echostar 410) was full of mold mold, and the remote was lost.

I picked up a President PS600XL http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...MEWN:IT&viewitem=&item=160087519212&rd=1&rd=1 , i like to think i got a good deal. The old Echostar push out 36v for the the dish mover and the 600xl only uses 24v. That is the only small problem we have.

So we oiled up everything. The mover looks pretty good for it's age.

After a little wiring and some bad words we got it to move.


But we belive the LNB is out. Their is red light on it, but the light is not on

Also we found a new looking LNB in the old trailer, but it has a oversize cable end. So we belive that his dad tried to fix it but gave up. And yes their was a wasp nest inside the feeder cover, along with some spider egg sacks.

So the question at hand, were is a good place to get a c-band LNB for cheap.

Off topic, but on topic, I have a fix for this issue which will automatically fix big images and shrinks them down automatically. :)

I will install it soon. :)

Had time to work on the dish this weekend. I notice something else too. The servo motor is not working. So i'm just going to swap out the whole feedhorn with the one I got in the mail. The old looks good, but i have newer one so why not. Then I'm gonna put the California LNB on it. With luck in the up coming weeks no snakes will be out.

Also here is the old LNB I found that does not fit

Rocket the snakes are already out, I almost stepped on a 2'black racer today, and have one that lives under a big rock at my garden, been watching him about 2weeks now. So the nasty ones are out too, for sure. I'm about 100m north of you.
