Well.... never thought I'd be able to get these but I managed to lock two TV transponders from Badr-5 and 6. A lot more were just under lock so I would probably get a couple of others if the house wasn't in the way...

Another frequency logged today. Looks like mornings are best for this if anyone wants to have a go.

@pride21 - what do you get from Badr-5/6 down where you are on your 1.5m?

You're getting some remarkable results on your 1.5, in Ku and C. Wonder if there's something wrong with my setup...

P7110009.jpg Hi CJ this is a picture of my lnb on a home made connection,the lnb holder is 1 inch from the main strut also the two support struts which go on the main arm are just over half an inch lower than the holes which are already drilled this gave me maximum gain,it may be different on your dish,i found that most manufacted dishes are slightly out.

Interesting... I already have a string lifting the whole LNB arm up due weight from 2 c band LNBs but will be good to experiment with that too...
