You may pick up the vertical signals easy. The horizontal ones might be tricky with that size. I would recommend fine tuning the dish to 97 west. Then try 103 and see what you may get. Have fun.
Fine tune... what do you mean by fine tune try to get the best signal quality possible? Im just making sure here to make sure I understand

Sorry that you took my post as an attack on you.

Correct, I know absolutely nothing about the Orbital Tracker LNBF and as an experience user, your testing would indicate that the LNBF is worth giving a try!

My forward thinking quickly identified BS in the seller's claim. Makes no matter if a product is good or bad, no reason to spread misinformation in order to sell a product. I would rather have a newbie on the SatelliteGuys forum know the real facts instead of thinking that their choice of a LNBF might affect how good the video looks.

I concur there are a lot of misinformation when sellers promote LNB's i noticed. Specs promising super low noise and amplified signal etc. The complete package i purchase on Amazon just happen to have that LNB. The Manhattan i discovered later had the front panel buttons installed in reverse order. I contacted the seller and they were more that happy to pay for shipping and sent a new box. Just sharing my experience.

This lnb is quite a good price and is a PLL. is it worth it over the Orbital Tracker Lnb. also to note my setup wont be a permanent setup and will be carried around essentially a portable setup. is it a legit product or fake i'm not sure i just want to be sure. I thank everyone for there help!

Yes, GeoSstPro are good PLL LNBF. I would personally get a two port just for future proofing. I have some of their two port PLL ones, love them.
