Obviously with a minitioune V2 you have no problem to receive everything.
You have the "receiver" made for that frequency band.:)
Congratulations.:Y

Thank you, this is my build, I added a board with RT5047 IC so I can use 13/18v and 22KHz and use it for Amateur DATV as well as feed hunting.
Currently I am testing different LNB's.

Next step will be to transmit, I have a Lime SDR And need to build/buy an amplifier.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Hmmmm, the Philex unit gives similar performance to the Global ADX switch on the normal band limits, though there is no switch to operate the unit in the downconverted range. The LED is permanently lit and upon disassembly there is a missing set of components around where the switch should be.

If anyone does know how these things are enabled, let me know. It is a spare though.

Hmmm, according to the Philex blurb.

Astra 1D converter with RFS -remote function selection. This patented feature enables the converter to be sited away from the receiver, using the polarisation voltage shift that occurs during channel changes to provide automatic switching. The converter is compatible with all receivers that use dual -voltage polarisation switching, including the Amstrad SRD510 and 520. An integral double filter reduces interference from backwards radi-ation. The suggested retail price is £24.95
