I think you'd be pushing it a little, you're asking for nearly 60degrees of separation. Even dishes designed for multilnb's only cope with about 40 deg (in spec anyway, i'm sure people are pushing the boundaries a bit more) check out the wavefrontier dishes:

Here's a german example of pushing 50 degrees... _http://www.satellite-heaven.de/index.htm?jump=testreports/wavefrontier_t90.htm


Get an lnb and wave it around, but I don't think you'll get much...
