I have a hobby op125 dish trying to set my c-band lnb's up, but I cannot work out the correct setting. I have them set to 40 at the moment.

Can any one help me out please.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Upload a picture or two of the system.

Is the front of the LNB waterproofed ?

At the moment it just has the end caps fitted for the water proofing.

Well that's never going to work. The C-band LNBs should be at the same height as the Ku LNB.

Probably not as critical at C band frequencies but do try to make them at the same level. Here's my setup, maybe it will help.

Mine are a bit closer together than yours.

Doesn't mean it's a better setup :p

The reason they are so far apart is because I was loosing a bit of signal on Ku as the large C feedhorns were shadowing a bit of the Ku LNB - so I moved them further apart.

Yes, the c band lnbs are far to high so they are pointing well below the arc. CJ, no problem with the feeds blocking here and they are much closer together. Chris, yhe conical feeds seem to work best at about 28.

Finally got them the same height. :-)
And it made one heck of a difference.

At the moment 106 services on 20e, 10e is a service called sayer. 3 e is 8 services, 1 west is a data signal only. 5 west 100 + services, 11w I have 13services. 22w is 4 services. 34.5 gives me 2 services. And 40w hippodrome all the time but others come and go. I have them linked to a vu duo, & tm5302.

For c-band the vu is buy far the best as the Technomate doesn't seem to be as good.

Just blind scanning 20e c-band and I have found a new transponder 4023 L 15000 s2 16apsk 3/4.

Is there any way of watching 16apsk transmissions?
