Do you know what kind of dish he was using?

Here is another test, however his results are not what i got when i compared Invacom vs. SMW.

Good evening together. today I made a small LNB comparison test in the garden.

Here are the interested results, all single WR75 and C120 flange LNB's was tested: SMW X-LINE type C, 0.8dB; Astrotel Precision Model PMJ, 0.5dB; Invacom 0.3dB; and a Kathrein CAS 120(Offset) antenna.

I used Nilesat for comparison, related to vertical and horizontal transponders. The percentage now do not follow state naturally much, however i have done a direct comparison below.


48-50%_______11938 V______Invacom
23-25%_______12034 H______Invacom
45-46%_______11938 V______SMW
18-19%_______12034 H______SMW
43-45%_______11938 V______Astrotel
16-17%_______12034 H______Astrotel

The signal strength was with the SMW and Astrotel equal, 10% more highly than with the Invacom, bring however nothing, because off approx.. 16% Quality gibt's Kloetzchen and with 15% is black.

I made the test exact in this order and because I did not want to believe it, there me nevertheless guarantee the clouds a caper must playing, I afterwards again the Invacom to made.

It confirmed its quality completely exactly. Unfortunately then powerfully dark clouds pushed, gladly still somewhat continued to try me to the brisk retreat. Result: Disappointing which the sow expensive, professional so mentioned LNB's delivers against the inexpensive Invacom.

There I burned money correctly. But NO NO do not annoy, if the weather am along-played tomorrow I the dish on roof to finally bring.
