| I switched out universal lnb on 90 cm Aqiza with the QPH 031 and was surprised at how many additional channels I picked up. For example; SAT 97 was only pulling in about 160 ch, and with the qph it brought in 289 with new scan, and now I see NBC on 103 with 75Q, could not see it before.|
I am not sure if this has anything to do with it but I am not having any issues with motor movement and switching h/v right now after the switch, I was before.

|bkday,I had a Universal on my 90cm in Az., years ago and switched to a QPH 031 and experienced the same thing. Liked it, because it did both linear and circular. |

|I'm using the QPH-031 on a similar sized dish as well, and can get the NBC Mux here in Southern Ontario. |

|Which brand and model of universal lnb did you replace?|
I was just thinking about getting a universal to see what I could see below 11700, did you ever make use of the lower band?

|I had a digiwave universal lnbf... it couldnt even see some signals... I was almost pullin my hair out tweaking my KU dish... I put a linear lnbf on and had signals/ channels I didnt even know were there...|
I think some universal lnbf's just dont work worth a hoot... for NA signals...
- dishes = 10 foot Janeil, 36" x 39" Digiwave
- lnbf's = geosat C2, dmx 522
- receivers = AZbox premium, Coolsat6000, Pansat9200, General Instrument 450i

|I have the digiwave universal twin. I did not really pick anything up below the 11700. Many of the low band are beamed to Europe. It did well, but when I replaced it I could not believe what I was missing. Huge improvement with the QPH 031. I get from 15W to 139. The universal did well on the Atlantic Sats, on high bands, just did not see any low bands. A 1.2m may make the difference with low band. |
The QPH does wonderful at the lower sats with 15W, the MSNBC mux is at 81Q, 5 points higher than the universal.I was happy with what I was getting, but now with the QPH I get the Montana PBS and a lot more that I did not get. I get more than what the DMX 741 on the big bud does. I am at Buffalo NY just over the border on the Can side
Any one considering one of these I would highly recommend one as it does pick up the very weak signals and fringe areas of the footprints. Good S2 signals with this and the 90cm Ariza oval

|Further testing today on many of the sats has brought in so many new channels. On 30w I was only seeing about 32 channels with the universal. I am now receivieng 72 channels on 30w. Some of the high band Europe beams i can see like 12172,12132 with press tv and othere. I am wondering now if the universal invacom snh universal might be strong like this one and pick up the low bands as I could not with the other universal. |
