Unless you have a C-Band Extended LNB that covers the frequency range of 4500 - 4800 MHz you will not be able to receive any of the C-Band signals in the extended range that are the subject of this topic. General C-Band LNB's do not cover this frequency range, you need a model that overs the range.
Yes, as MB says an extended LNB required for the extended range, usually available from the USA or China...

Sorry but my reference to simple 22Khz switch will do the job of switching between low and High band this was on SCOPUS SMW Ku-Band Quad Multiband LNB he has for sale since I have a single feed and his LNB is dual feed High + Low . But on my corotor there is a Gardiner 44 Kelvin 3.7 - 4.2 Ghz which like you say does cover 4500-4800 Mhz , 30 years ago I would plug the C Band LNB into my Scanner via a DC blocker which would cover the IF freq 950 - 1450 Ghz and you could find some interesting things to listen to . I wonder whats on 4500 - 4800 as I see that SMW sell a C band LNB that does 3.600–4.800 GHz I hate to think of the price . Looking at my Corotor spec that is only good for 3.7 - 4.2 so I would need to make some changes .
