hi all just getting back in to multi sat rx
i used to have a 36v h-h motor
but this time i was just thinking about 1 dish and a 3-4 way lnb bracket
i was looking at the triax one...i would think 19 in center 28 and 13 either side...or in some cases i have seen 13 center and 19 28 to one side ,which would you recommnd ??? one last question... the triax multi holder looks like its not possible to put an lnb holder in the center position ?? becouse of the screws/bracket , surley this is not a good deisign ???
cheers thanks for reading

Depends on how the dish performs, for example I have done Triax centred on 19e with 28e/13e as offsets. Now take Raven dishes as an example; you can centre on 13e with those as of the design :D

Just have to slide it as close to centre as possible.

oh well i spose.. but it sounds a bit "heath robinson" i.e. not using the prime focus of the dish !!!

You could use either one of these dishes with brackets.

That's a Zone 2 minidish, so between 65 and 70cm across, slightly smaller than the Raven Gemini 70cm.

Its a Multi Feed Holder for up to 4 LNB's for a Gibertini dish, attached to abit off alu L section cable tied to the original dish arm, to get 2@s more distance away from the dish.

Google "Multi Feed Holder for up to 4 Lnb" the top links where it come from.

the 5th lnb holder on 5e is a electric drill grip handle thing cut down and cable tied on, had a spare lnb so thought i'd use it ;).

and yes zone2 dish
