Many thanks Kveys, ive tried @ 56 but not a peep I will have another go at some point with the correct lnb, any more birds that might be possible please ?
Many thanks for your kind offer Feedsat, Kveys is kindly donating me one , I noticed you have been doing test recently I need to translate the page and have a good read, thanks again .@martin-f : if you want to test my circular lnb, let me know...
I can send you this one for few weeks
Thank you Kveys, I am loving all this new stuff to me, I will try and find time to get C band setup in the coming weeks36E / 56E are only ones I think (Ku). And reminder about different l.o! It´s not universal Lnb. So before you see channels on funny frequencies, remember that.
For what it is worth I have attached a picture below that presents my miserable attempt at locking some of the circular polarity frequencies currently transmitting from 36.0E. The test was a failure, not a single circular polarity frequency locked.
I did two scan types, one with a normal linear polarity LNB setup, the other with a Swedish Microwave Ku polariser placed inline between the C120 LNB and the dish Ku feed. The table attached below has separate columns to present the signal levels measured with and without the SMW XD12 polariser.
I could "see" three of the circular polarity signals from Express AMU1 using the signal level indicator of a Dr HD F15 receiver but they were way under the level required for a lock. I also tried the trick of testing the reverse polarity on the circular frequencies as mentioned by previous contributors to this topic, again, no success.
No excuses, the test was a total failure. I may have to install something a bit more suited to the task if I wish to have any hope of locking these circular polarity frequencies...
