    Yes ,Huevos you are correct.I have a teflon plate in my LNB to receive circular transmissions and if i remove the plate signal strengh does increase.East 78.5 satellite is linear polarised left and right,although my satellite receiver shows vertical and horizontal.

    My dish size is 2.4M.I receive several satellites from 78.5 East to 27.5 West.As an example on 78.5 East, i receive 11 tansponders in Horizontal and 7 of them in vertical as well.

    Yes you are right about L and R.My receiver shows V and H. Being motorised i receive all available satellites.I have got a dual C Band LNB but i dont think that should make any difference.Possibly faulty LNB?

    I have a C band dish in South Africa and have set my skew (0) to my Apex satellite.However,i am receiving on some frequencies both a horizontal and vertical signal.Please advise the reason for this as the channels are duplicated. Note, it is a motorised dish.

    Spaun Multiswitch Relay

    The above relay is fed by 4 dishes (4 sockets) to one satellite receiver.How can i feed it to two satellite receivers. I understand the switch i have is a diseqc multiswitch.What is the difference between a multiswich and a diseqc multiswitch.When do you use a multiswitch on its own.

    You should only use an actuator,preferably 24 inch.Even 1M is dicey with a sat motor.Long term go for an actuator as well.

    transformer for Moteck 11 Positioner.

    I had about six actuators in bids and pieces and decided to check them out.These actuators i got from my son who is an installer in another country.No doubt the reed switches were shot already when i got them.In any case i purchased two reed switches from a Security (alarm system)...
