Hi, i'm new on here, basically i'm after some advice.
I have a white amstrad fidelity satellite dish, one of the first sky dishes from 1989, I am very keen on restoring it, I plan to take it apart, rub down and respray the tripod bracket, respray the actual dish and LNB arm, replace all the screws, nuts and bolts etc, and even replace the amstrad fidelity sticker! Lol.
Once complete, I would really like to put the dish back into use, and was wondering if it might work for Sky Digital if i fit a quad LNB and align it to 28.2?

As long as it's fitted with a digital lnb it should work fine.

Certainly will. Just need to get a standard universal quad LNb for the dish.
Edit: Beaten to it again.

Hello again analoguesat, thanks for advice on both forums, lol. I've fallen out with that other name as it is no longer relevant but cannot change it unfortunately! Thanks again.
