2 degrees of separation is too close together for 2 LNBs.

On a large dish it's just about possible, if the LNBs are slim types, to get a 3 degree separation. 2 degrees - I can't see it.

Didn't want to answer as I haven't tried it, even with 3 degrees on a big dish the second LNB may get a signal, but does not hit the centre of the dish, so if you are looking for a couple of satellites which require a minimum dish size close to what you have, the secondary one will suffer signal wise.

Well I have no problem with getting 28 & 26 east on one dish, but, perhaps that is because my dish is motorised:) :) :)

GMBP:)

There has to be one "feather plucker" doesn't there!;) ;)

What I can do is get KRT on both 4west & 5west
