...For a future test, it might be interesting to compare a C1-PLL instead of a wideband C1W-PLL. While our filtering will attenuate frequencies above 4.2HHz, the C1-PLL is tuned for 3.7- 4.2GHz band and not balanced for the entire 3.4 - 4.2GHz range like a wideband LNBF.
I purchased a Titanium C1-PLL LNBF shortly after I ran the tests and found it gave improved performance over the Titanium C1-WPLL LNBF. I will possibly repeat the test if I move upwards to a larger dish.
If you (Titanium) decide to get a 3.7 - 4.8 GHz twin probe LNBF manufactured I would certainly buy a couple of them. However, I realise that there has to be a minimum order quantity for a production run.
At the moment with 40.5 West I am on the threshold for a lock with one of the extended C Band frequencies (4581 L) and under a lock for the other one (4641 L). I need to go up in dish size to get both to lock.
