Goes to show that a small taste of C band is available on smaller dishes. I even received 3E on a 85cm dish in the past!

I think its better than the hh120, the dish will only fix in one position on the stab, you showed some interest when I put it on the Sheffield forum last year, I will take a look later and post a picture up.

That's good going. With a bit of time and some more scanning you can get a few more transponders.

I use the gib 1.25 and titanium c-1.

Can you blind scan? Here are some of my blind scans from some of the days you are missing.

Do not think so, moving the dialectric will simply reverse the polarity as per post#121 in this thread:-https://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/threads/getting-started-on-c-band.158568/page-7
