    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.

    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.

    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.
