I have an assortment of 30" dishes on hand not being used. If I mount Ku LNB's on them would I have enough signal to get NBC on SES3 & the ABC News feeds on G17? Living in western Canada near the U.S. border
Always hunting for concert/music feeds. Equipped with Linkbox 9000i, Azbox Me, Geosatpro microHD, Openbox S9, Monterrey 90, Uniden SQ560, 9' solid Dish C/KU, "Muzak" 1.2m Channel Master dish

The NBC feeds probably not as they are DVB-S2 and 8-psk. You need more dish for them. Would need a dialed in 36" dish or 1.2 meter dish for those. The ABC mux on 91 would probably be doable on a 30" dish. Give it a shot, nothing to lose.

I live NE Wyoming and have gotten the NBC/Cozi on 103 with a 30" dish, with some imperfections.  Was just a quick test, but was not pixelating or anything.  Would probably be gone in a decent rain though.  Your mileage may vary though due to foot print.

Hope your injuries are not to bad and you heal up quickly.

I'm using a Slimline Directv with ku LNB, I get the NBC mux on SES3 and the ABC feeds on G17. Even with the rains we had a couple of days ago both still came in. I'm in Toledo, Ohio if it helps. So I don't think you'll have a problem pulling them in

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
