Hello!
can anyone confirm,that in past a fibo multifeed holder exitits?
someone in germany told me he has one,soon i get the manual,then i can upload here,maybe its easy to make one,but without orginal size,a little bit dificult:)

in an auction on ebay 2 years ago i also saw this multifeed holder,but on the web,i found nothing about it,should be maybe also posible,to install more then 2 lnbs on it,anyone try this?
if so post pictures!
thanx:)

I think its useless if you stand to the use off the orginal subreflector (mine is 240 mm wth) and 2 feedhorns (90 mm ).

I 've been messuring and drawing , 2 feedhorns in front off the subr. gives an off-set from 40º !!

2 subreflectors in front off the 120 cm Fibo gives an off-set from 16º .
On a 90 cm fibo are approc. the same size subrefl.
By a shorter focalpoint-lenght , this will even give a greater off-set angle .

Off course you can remove de subrefl. , make de feedarm longer and place 2 (or more) Lnbf's on a rail , but than you must scratch away the sign "Gregorian"

Is it yours ?
As I see it well , the original feedhorn is gone and on his place a standard lnbf .

No,it's not my dish.I took the picture over at my neighbours house.

Actually I've tried the same thing and believe it or not,I didn't loose too much pq compared to the stock feedhorn....

:eek: guess what I'd just found those pics in the satlex website, and came back here to see steffan had already posted the link... nice one! I'm sure that's a homemade multifeed holder, probably not the same thing Turok mentioned right?

Your right Camelon,that's homebrew.His setup works very well though.

I have experimented a lot with the Fibo,and I'm happy to answer any questions about that dish if I can.

Hello!
good evening!
when,we would have,the orginal size,of the multifeed holder,then i think"homemade"should also perform very well!
2 years ago on other sat boards i found a pircutre,there was installed nerly 5 lnbs on one fibo antenna,but i lost it after a harddic crash in the past!

on the multifeed holder itself,it would be much easier to fit a cband lnb!

But than it's not more a Gregorian so what is the winning part of it???

Better is make on the feedhorn a mod to use 2 LNB's not on the small dish place.

Hi Snuffer!
this picutre what i have,looks like an adaption,nothing have been modified from orginal

best thing is,to try the cband we must notmodified the antenna itself,we must modified,the lnb,break the plastik,of a relativly smale inverto lnb,then put,the cband electronic ,inside ,into a bigger kuband flansch lnb,like the old mti`s
then,good material around for water protection,and i think it should work,but it needs a lot of time!

Hi Guys,

this Multifeedholder is for real, no joke.

Aside from that, I wonder for what the second adapted lnb on the satlex pics is for?!?

Hello and welcome on board:)

here,is now a picture of this legandary multifeedholder,that no one have it...
intresting would be,the orginal size,to create one !
modell with out subreflector,then gainwining not good,but a modificaiton i couple of years ago,i found on the net,was moded,with the subrefloector and the multifeed adtionaly added,i think this would be the best solution,but not easy to made !

Now its not more a gregorian so the gain is low and as a normal dish.
One of the best thing from the FIBO are the gregorian effect.

I think the Torodial 90 is the best performing multi-LNB dish in it's category...
