1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

So which is the lnb that is picking up 26E is it fitted on the right in the picture?. How are you connecting your 2nd lnb? to the stb?
What elevation have you introduced on the 2nd lnb?, it should not be horizontal with the other

That holder should do it, 19E will be about halfway there, is there enough left on the bracket to slide out for 13 E?

pointing on arabsat am using a DiSEqC switch to link the two lnb to the reciever however am unble to get hotbird on the other lnb i was able to get
astra but not hotbird so am i doing samthing wrong here

I do not think so, you just need to move the lnb further towards the end of the bracket as Rolf says i.e. further away from the primary lnb

You move it further away, by about the same again.


PS. You will also need to bend the bracket downwards slightly to allow for the difference in elevation of the satellites.

no let you do that which satellite meter is good for digital

You move it down by bending the bracket.
