I've contacted the creator of these pcb antennas ..and hopefully getting one soon from the USA ..roughly $20 including shipping.
Hopefully make for an interesting project to scan L band with the LPA at the focus of a dish ..using SDR / Dongle..
Lets face it ..I'm just a nosey sod who wants to see what's out there..

And there was me thinking, you managed to bag a 5m monster for 2p.... This dish doesn't even have an LNB on it!

Where's L-band over Europe and what does it carry?

Oh that reminds me I have an L-band WorldSpace yagi plus 2.3V low noise amplifier with frequency range 1452-1492MHz which can be mounted on a dish for extra gain, would it be any use to you VS? Can't see I'll ever use it again...

If I am reading things correct, DAB should be possible ?.

No, Martin: DAB should have been shot at birth.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I thought L band DAB was terrestrial? In any case I also think that, certainly in France, it's been discontinued. There was a transmitter in Lyon, not sure about any more though.
