MULTI-STREAM on narrow angles

Hi,

I have SKY minidish with QUAD LNB 3 outputs used. Pointing at Astra 28.2 E.

I want to get E-Bird 33E as well for satellite internet. (7E is also available)

I have been told that whilst the split is too far as it stands it is too close to mount a second lnb on the dish to point at 33E any ideas?

Also is the field of view of a dish too narrow to have 1 lnb on 28.2E and the other on 7E and achieve it that way???

Yes, 4.5 degrees is a little close for two LNBs and 21 degrees is a touch on the large size, particularly if using a minidish. What you may consider is the Raven 70cm with the East and west Arms, then have 28.2 on one side and 7 East on the other, what type of quad is it, does it have a 40mm collar?

There are several versions and some can fit into a standard 40mm collar, whilst others have an integral case and slide mount.
