bleater:or is there some reason why a 5.06° monoblock might actually work with D1/D2 spacing?


Isn't there an 8° gap between D1 & D2. (160° vs 152°)?

4° gap between D1 & C1/D3.

Sorry, I meant D1 and D3 actually, but the discussion is still relevant.

I also forgot to mention that this LNB has the same reversal of H and V polarities mentioned above... weird. I got around it by swapping H and V in the receiver, but a bit annoying all the same.

what about one of these?

line your dish up to C1/D3, then put the bracket and LNB on the side you want, depending if you want D1 or D2.  They are all 4 degrees apart, so should work fine.

They used to sell a triple LNB bracket (just a piece of metal) which I use for D2, D1 and C1/D3
