t6 at 93 degrees for analog! t6 is a great sat for analog feeds and pretty fair for dvb. if i just had a fta box and no analog i would pick amc 1, gotta love ion free channels! so i would say t6 or galaxy 26 as most call it.
Thanks for the tips.
I have a limited view due to foliage.
It's leaning against the house on 99w so I"ll set it up so I can crank it east. West of 99, I have trees. Then a hole for the last west satellite I can get , G10. I realize this is a c-band discussion, but can I put a Ku LNB on the dish to get the other stuff.
I am using Bsc-621 but having zero luck with the Ku side. Never did get it working.....
if you didn't get it to work you can look at the tech bulletin maybe its set wrong. I actually found it easy to setup (cause i figured out the focal distance) tuned in c-band digital (and marked the limits for the best signal ) then proceeded to adjust the feedhorn for ku signal staying within those c-band markings. took all of about 5 minutes. i will take a picture tomorrow and let you see it.
The dish has a mount. The reason for the "leaning against the house" thing is more or less a site survey.
The reason for the initial post was to get your opinion on the best sats for C-band so I could locate the pole. You've answered my question.
Yes, I'm the wood block guy, remember, anything can be shimmed within 1 tenth of a degree using those wooden wedges left over from a door or window installation project.....
I've got a great signal on G16 C. I think the KU section of that LNB is bad.
If you recall, I'm the guy that bought the BSC-621, and found the thing loose right out of the box. After reading the bulletin and screwing with it, I gave up and decided to try adding a Ku lnb to the side of the scalar ring.
I saw somewhere on this site where a guy had taken a dremmel and "surgically" altered his ring to accommodate a Ku lnb, he said it worked too..
So, during the next couple of weekends, I'll get the hole dug, and the post set.
Hopefully I can get this thing installed before the snow flys!!
there is a small piece of wood between the LNB's but that didnt have to do with it. Issue is the LNB's are odd shaped and skewing them is a pain. The LNB (the old school models) are the easiest because you aim it how you like then skew the LNB (let the analog box do it). Or I just jam a screwdriver down the throat and manually skew for optimum signal
