A friend of mine told me that his mother in law got an installation for Amos 4W and Hot Bird 13E on ONE dish.
I told him that I don't think that this is possible.
Forgot to ask him if it was motorized, but let us assume it is fixed.
Is this really possible with a fixed dish and how?:confused

If the down link powers are high enough I dont see why it shouldnt work with a normal offset lnb configuration on the dish.

You should be fine in the Middle East - it wouldnt work well for Amos in northern Europe :D

Thanks Analoguesat. :)

Can you see this configuration working well in the UK with offset dish for Hot Bird 13E and another satellite that can be picked up easily like Atlantic Bird 5W?
If yes, what type of LNB would be used?
Also how would the setup looks like?

13E / 19E / 28E is quite common in the UK.

Ive got 16E / 23.5E / 28E on my 1m Orbital (not enough feeds on the Sky dish YET - the 28E is used for my DB :D)

And 13E / 9E / some tp off 7E on my Hottie dish.

13E / 5W should work if you shove the prime focus round somewhere near 5E.

(5W is about the strongest sat in western European skies!)
