The full sized conical feed kindly supplied by CH has arrived ..
This is destined for use on the -full band - Titanium C1 PLL- on Carl my offset 1.5m fortec star.
Is there any interest in me testing to see what transponders can be locked on this setup ?
The C1 is 8 degrees offset from the focus approx. ..and as we know rarely less than 1.2 will do the job catching ANYthing..
Most use 1.8 ...so this might encourage a few Cband wannabe recruits..
?

Agreed Costa ...and quite possibly there are handful of borderline transponders that _might_ just be do-able looking at the Crazyscan graph ..with a tweaked setup and the C1 PLL at the focus.

I'm running a comparison scan on Christina atm (Horizontal) ..
She is a 2.2 mtr PF of course ..and using the ESX241 ..
I'll post the graph when complete so you can compare it yourselves.

..Don't be surprised if I don't lock them all ..
There WAS a time when I could ..but old age is catching up with this bird ..and worse ...many channels have switched to 8psk etc..
or higher fec ..which makes DXing 55W more difficult even with a big dish.

Just curious VS, I'll do a scan of Intelsat 805 and report back the amount of tp scanned in with my 3m bud.

Sure VS. Not as aged on this side of the pond my friend. A quick blind scan on my x2 premium yields plenty:

TP: 49

Tv: 162

Radio: 44

Is that the combined number H and V Costa (49 tp) ?
If so I'll add the H hits to the V hits for a proper comparison ..
I am curious about 3 massive peaks that are unresponsive to the TBS card below 3550 V ..
I suspect these are broadband router signals ?
Certainly at this low elevation it's a possible..
V scan almost complete..
There is of course the possibility also that not all used TPs in the USA are echoed on the European lobe..

Good job VS, especially considering its footprint which puts you in the 40 dbw range and I'm in the 42 dbw and with a larger dish:

Perhaps we can compare this one another evening ..?
