Hi,

I bought the Gemini 90cm a while ago and haven't set it up yet (it's long overdue) and noticed most people use a standard LNB like an invacom 0.3dB, and not the "oval" sky type even though the dish is elliptical like a sky dish. So basically I'm wondering if it matters for oval dishes?

Sorry if this has been asked before

Cheers

No, it uses a standard LNB, the dish is configured so that it illuminates a round feed.

Thanks rolfw for clearing that one up, I have a couple of older lnbs and thought if I buy a newer one should it be oval, but now I will probably go for an invacom.

Hi, is there a web site for Raven Dishes? All that I can find, doing searches, is sites for distributors/retailers. I would like to read up about their dishes first hand having read such glowing reports about them, and the fact that the design cuts down close satellite interference. ie between 28E and 26E also 7W and 8W.

Hi,

I emailed raven about the oval lnb issue asked above, but they didn't reply. Nevermore will I email them - I still bought the dish, though.

I was gonna mention the website but BGonaSTICK beat me to it...

However, here is a PDF I downloaded a while back:

Hope it helps :)
