After buying the WS International ESX241 with your recommendations and giving the promised excellent results I am now looking to buy the dual feed version ie:-

ESX242 Dual Feed LNBF as per:_
242.JPG
but cannot seem to find a supplier. I have emailed WSI direct but no reply as yet.

¿Can anyone give me a help with this or perhaps have one themselves?

I have read varying comments and results with the Titanium equivalent so I really fancy the WSI 242 one!

Thank you in advance.

Sorry to hear of the demise of WSI and I will look again in more depth at the Titanium products as I have read varied reports on the C-Band results.

Thank you for your guidance with this thread. :)

If its the WSI you insist on LP, wait to see what Costactc says first, if not Chris's results with the Titanium says it all for me:).

The Titanium LNBFs are very good for a cheap price (for a PLL LNBF) the Dual (C2W) is not sold yet in Europe, only in America, available on ebay or on the Titanium online store http://www.titaniumsatellite.com/c2wpll.

The C1 PLL is available in Europe over ebay or satshop24.de (and soon in France ;)

Its been reported on fridgefta, satelliteguys and others about wsi. 2 years ago I tried to order a conical scaler from wsi they gave me hell talk down to me and Jack there price on it. If you call up Brian he could ship out the dual output to you might cost more. He has worked with me before on my dish setup.

Hi M, no, do not insist on WSI just that there do not seem to be negative posts about them......anyway read the threads/posts and indeed Chris's results are ok so I will now order a Titanium dual, thanks. :)

Yes I will await a reply from Costactc and if another brand/type is recommended then I am quite happy to order another as well.

Ta for the assist M.

Unfortunately Wsi went silent last Fall as I too was looking for another esx242, which I consider the best dual c band lnbf that I have ever tested. I had mixed results with my single titanium so I'm a bit leery at ordering the dual but probably will, just to test later on after my Fortec and CM 1.2m dishes are properly installed. I have been using a cheap dual lnbf on my 3m mesh dish with excellent results so if you come by a Psi X2 lnbf it might be worth a try. Hope this helps.

Back in November 2014 when I bought my CM 1.2m dish the sat dealer I purchased them from (GTA Electronics 7222 Torbram Rd, Unit 16 Mississauga, Ontario L5S 1A1 ) had a couple of the ESX242 left.

Update....thanks to all here for their assist.

Great and fast response from Titanium (direct) and they speak well of poster/member 'dan rose'.
Made a query about the fact that web pages conflicted re the dual feed LNBF in that the ranges showed on one page 3400GHz - 4200GHz whilst another page shows 3700GHz - 4200GHz.........Titanium confirm that it does cover 3400GHz - 4200GHz, which is great......response was:-

Do you have a prime focus or offset dish? You may need to order a scaler ring for offset.
Both 1.8m are PF Chris but the motorised 1.2m is offset so when I had my first C-Band LNBF I ordered at the same time the scaler:
https://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/threads/c-band-beginner.161913/
so luckily when or if I want to test the 2 x new LNB's on the 1.2 I am prepared. :D

You certainly get some good results and variation with your own setup at your location, well done.......also nice to see the Ka threads.

Thanks for the nudge Chris, be safe. respect-048.gif
