1.8 m CM at SMR 1224 + Elev. with 7 lnb changer Ku (lin - circ) - Ka (lin - circ) C (lin - circ)
My Location
Nijmegen Netherlands
To see what happens I connected the SUP in line with the Kakuo lnb and made blindscans on 42ºE and 19.2ºE. (TM5402 M3)
On both satellites found and stored sevaral channels but no picture at all .
What happens ??

I get some frequency hopping phenomena with the SUP in on 19.2 Trust. That will be AEHF2 I should think, now possibly at 19E. See DXSat's post -

16.5°W AEHF 2 (incl)

That's in Ka Band C, so maybe this LNB can work OK down there with the IF conversion?

On WGS3 12W, I get a reasonable 6.5dB on 20776V. So placing the SUP-2400 in line with the KaKu LNB shifts the IF down to Ka C band onto the 1650-2150 MHz part of the IF spectrum (D band -1400 MHz, the shifted frequency).
The D-band is still maintained in the lower part of the IF spectrum.

The LNB seems quite open to tuning down to the previous band.
