I found a adl feedhorn for $30.00 and would like the know some info.
First what way do you mount this feed, It will be replacing my combo 741 lnbf.
Second there are no marks for f/d,so should I just use the old tape measure.
Third Is this c-band lnb a good brand ?
Forth do we have a manual for this type of feedhorn or does anyone have the
manual. Here are some pics to enjoy. Thanks

The feed is an ADL RP3 C-KU it's almost like a Chaparral. So you can follow there installation info. The LNB is a Super Ice (Rice Burner junk) that was sold on Satellite city. I would get another LNB and use it with the feed. It may not work well with digital.

"Worlds first elbowless lnb" gotta love it:D Gary (Satellite City) talked me into buying one and it turned out to be a nice Cal-Amp 30 degree so I wouldn't throw it out unless I gave it a try. Its not a Cal-Amp for sure but it might work ok provided lightning didn't get it over the years. BTW, you did ok for the $$, the ADLs are nice feedhorns, I have an RP1

I have two Cal-Amp mini-mag lnb's, so I should be ok. And to drive
the servo I have a 905 4dtv box, and or a Pansat 3500sd, so I'm
covered on that.

I have a ? about the pansat 3500sd and it's servo controller. Is there
a way to run the ku-side at a fixed voltage say 18volts. I see lnb settings
to run C-band this way, but not ku. If not I think I have a hardware solution
that would work.I have and old channel master switch 4x4. I might try that
and run the ku 13v and 18v to a slitter with a d.c. pass on the 18v side.
Any info would help.

Well this idea works good.I just don't know if I need the rotate the feedhorn
using the servo motor or the ku elbow as my guide.I tried both and went with
using the ku elbow. I didn't know if it would make a difference with the ku at 90
offset from the c-band. Anyone have a thought.:)
