Australian Dollar seems at a good point against our £Pound.....
Enquired to AV-Comm for the latest shipping costs to the UK ... see pic.
Tech support tells me barrel is not particularly sharp and should operate in Extended C-band 4.5-4.8GHz without any appreciable loss.
Awaiting final cost from Sales using "Standard" shipping but estimate around £186 total.

Me too, please.

What's special about the Zinwell LNB?

Couldn't tell you G, Net searching from years past seems to have fair comments about them, and i suppose, if AV-Comm use them as an economy route to circular and machine them to fit the barrel , they can't be all that bad ?? lol.

Re: AV-Comm C-band Polariser barrel / Zinwell lnbf multi buy ......
I have informed Sales that i have a present count of four (4) requiring units: ... Me, Captain Jack, S-Band & Moonbase and that i will contact him asap with a final amount required.

Is there anybody else wanting to put their name on the list, need to know by noon Tuesday to pass on the info to AV-Comm Sales and get the ball rolling whilst the Aus Dollar / GB Pound is at a good point.
My estimation for one unit inc shipping was about £186, multiple units shipped together could bring the cost down ??.

Ok, no more responses so will get the ball rolling for a total of four (4) AV-Comm C-band polariser barrel / Zinwell lnbf combination.
Current participants: Me, Captain Jack, S-band & Moonbase.

This info will now be sent to Garry @ AV-Comm in Sydney Australia for total price of 4 units inc shipping hopefully in a one-off shipment to the UK.
No doubt there will be a little stealth tax import tax imposed on us but should not amount to much.

Will report back once info received back from AV-Comm.

Yeah, ask him politely to price the package for just 1 or 2 LNBs... will keep import costs down.

Really you need them sending as 'Gifts' otherwise you get hit twice! Import duty, plus VAT which is unavoidable now even on gifted packages.

Interesting unit will you modify them with skew

If you don't speak German subtitles are available.
.........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

What a coincidence, i was looking at that about two hours ago lol.
Iv'e already modded my existing C-band stuff for skew using lnbf's and conventional lnb's on my polariser barrels and it really is a bonus to have.
Never had a Zinwell Cband lnbf like that before and yeah, i recon i will mod it for skew when they arrive.
Thanks for putting the link up.
