Can anyone tell me if this is a C/KU lnb and if it is worth using for minibud. It was salvaged from 10' paraclipse.

I used a 25K C-Band LNB on a 6 footer and it was questionabale....so on a minibud...probably not much

Thanks for the info, I guess I'm stuck with KU for now.

dont let us discourage you from trying

A couple of us have proven you can get the really strong transponders with a 18" dish and a finely tuned LNB (skew is very critical with that)

Here is something I did a year ago with an 18" dish and KU band. Its G3 (which is real close to my true south)

I used a 30 degree California Amplifier C band LNB on my 90cm mini-bud . Seamed to do as good as could be expected ?
