They do work? I recall a known member'Iceberg' with this quote "you can use the receiver to get 97W but you need a 30" or larger dish and linear LNB. Those pizza dishes have the wrong LNB type and are too small". So now my question is if a dishnetwork dish can be used to catch 97W, which dish would it be because I didn't know dishnetwork had dishes big as 30 inches.
A pic of the dish would be nice if possible thanks.
we're talking about 2 different things here
The "normal" dish network dishes are 20" round or 23x20" and have circular polarity LNB's
Superdishes (Dish doesnt make them anymore) are 36x20 and have one linear LNB (and 2 circular). Dish use to utilize 2 satellites (105 & 121) that required a linear LNB. Dish still uses 121 for some business items and now the Racetrack Network and those LNB's will work for free to air for the stronger signals out there. A round (eggshaped) 30" dish would work better for weaker signals
