C-band spotbeams? That's a first.
The former Amos 5 @ 17°E I could receive in Europe, but I am afraid this will be different.

Dedicated website: AMOS-17 satellite : Optimal coverage of Sub-Saharan Africa in C-band HTS, K-band and Ka-band
Also has downlinks in 13.4...13.65 GHz, the new FSS band for Region 1 as decided during ITU WRC-15. A first I think.



Reading the spec for this satellite looks very interesting indeed and look forward to it being in operation. Look forward to the 13 GHz downlinks to explore. I recently saw an advertisement for lnb's for 13.4-13.6 GHz but can't remember where.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I have a few telecom band LNBs here - NEC, brand LO 11.475 GHz WR75 flange - which can be used on modern tuners up to the 13.65GHz limit.

Cheap too. :)

+1, from me CH.
One of those Telecom LNB's would fit nicely onto a Precision AD11SP waveguide with the UBR 120 flange.
