    Yes John, the 1.8 using the Inverto with the grafted Hughes feedhorn, seems to work well. P1010039.JPG

    *Using the 21GHz Gilat scalar feed on the Band D XMW lmb gave about a 2dB increase over the Inverto Ka/Ku lnbf. Also changed the front cap for clear cap.
    These two are showing up today ... 21.579H & 21.583H but no locks at the moment. Signals a bit unstable at the moment due to windy conditions blowing the 1.25 Gibby around.

    23.5° East Astra or WGS1 satellite ?.
    Three very weak Hor, i think, carriers sitting just above noise from the 1.25Gibby / Gilat feed / XMW DRO lnb.

    Astra 23.5° East.
    .. This bird is now becoming alive even more.
    Low level carriers up at the moment but on / off nature are: --
    21.491 H
    21.493 H
    21.494 H
    21.488 H
    21.489 H
    A quick grab to show carriers up at the time .

    John, they look more like narrow data signals than pure carriers

    Found them. There are 4 but it may appear that there are more due to their pulse nature which will confuse the analyser plotting. The waterfall shows that the upper pair and the lowest one have a high duty cycle and 21490 has a duty cycle <50%. They are just visible on the CS scan.

    Has anyone managed to resolve the 6? horizontal signals at the top of the band?
