The dish is a little small for both, but with 13E as the main focus, you may just get an acceptable level of reception with 28.2 as the offset LNB.

thanks rolfw.

I Just got to move my dish now so that 13E to be the main focus. What if it is the other way around , so the main focus was set at 28.2E ? would i still get a singal that way?

Not a very good one, 28.2 is the stronger of the two, you are pushing it as it is.

Dont forget the lnb is on the oposite side from the signal.

Hi All,

I have a simular setup.

13,19.2,28.x

I have Astra1 (19.2) as my main focus lnb, is that the correct idea?
This is on a 60CM dish (i know its small for tripplle lnb's).

The reason I ask is Hotbird (13) is a weak signal (especially in bad weather), and I was thinking if I made that my main locked lnb, would Astra1 & 2 be strong enough that far offset?

Thanks
Wom.

Because the signal is reflected from the dish, the offset LNB, will be pointing across the dish and if looking at a more Easterly satellite, will be on the Western side of the main focus LNB. :)

I just read on a Turkish forum someone getting Turksat and Hotbird off a 90CM dish - he made the thingy he puts the LNB's on himself...I was amazed!

AFAIK, Turksat and Hotbird are 29 degrees apart!
