Remember back in the the day when there was 3 bands FSS,DBS,TELECOM BAND in KU-BAND, I remember i use to have a telecom band lnb straped to the side of my main 1.5db fss band lnb with polarizer to get the telecom satellites way before the universal lnb was on the market,


How things have changed it was better back then more fun trying to get a sparkle free pic from MTV on 27.5w

Country Music TV on 27.5W was the one to go for to test your dish/LNB.

2.0m dish recommended, but my SMW 1.2M/ SMW W/B 0.7db usually managed fine with a few sparklies.
