If you have a satfinder , it will help you greatly to look for c band signals on a 4 ft dish!
The advice is that you don't have the right combination of parts assembled to make a for a good learning tool. A learning tool needs to be something that will work under most conditions. C-band on a four-footer will likely only work under near-ideal conditions and with the hottest signals. With an LNB that may be dead and a too-small dish, you have two strikes against you out of the gate. Testing any component of a system depends on knowing that all of the other components are giving you what you need.You are probably right about me choosing a difficult project but the parts just fell into my lap so I basically decided to make it happen.
