28E and 19E on a 88cm dish

I have an 88cm Triax dish and I want to receive the satellites at 28E and 19E from a location in the south of the UK. I assume that I should align the dish to point at 19E and use a second LNB on an extension arm or bracket to get 28E, is that right? Also what is the arm or bracket called and are there any instructions as to how to align the second LNB anywhere?

Thanks

Jim

Hello Jim, I believe its called an offset arm, I attach a picture of a common design.

Setting it up is a bit trial and error, Sky actually used a cheap bracket on their 60cm dish that was preset, so if you were alligned on 19.2, it would automatically be setup.

The signal on bioth sats should storm in using a dish of that size.
