Here in Brazil, we need this to receive L/R polarizations... have the very very good signal

A few members of this forum are using polariser barrels with good results. I found they improve the signal level compared to the method of placing a dielectric plate into the LNB.

@frank-sinatra

I checked the web site and it looks like the owner accepts PayPal as a method of payment and will ship internationally. I think that orders need to get a quote from the website owner for international shipping cost.

I sent the message yesterday and I'm waiting the answer about ship internationally...

I'm interested in one of the extended LNBs so put me down on any multibuy list that appears. Individual shipping cost would be good to know too, the LNB is so cheap that if the correct customs values were put in (means it is fully insured during transit) but marked as a gift on the customs declaration it should come in below the VAT/duty threshold.

Just needs someone to organise it if the supplier is willing to ship to the UK.

I spoke with Brian from Titanium last night, we've been keeping in contact regarding his extended C Band LNB. The bad news for us is the fleet service that he's been manufacturing for have extended their licence for at least two years so he's unable to bring any similar product to the market. Looks like that Brasilian one could be the best (cheap) option for now.

There are extenced C band LNB's on eBay with shipping to the UK should anyone wish to organise a group buy to keep shipping costs down?

My experience of stuff coming in from the States is retailers there never mark down their value and a high percentage of it gets pulled at Customs so you end up with quite a jump in price. If you can convince the retailer to send it with a TARIC of 8528719100 it should just get clobbered for VAT with 0% duty plus whatever handling fee the RM or courier slap on top.
