Has anyone tried mounting a standard feedhorn or Corotor on a 1.2m dish? I have a half decent KU LNBS, the type made in Japan for commercial use. If you had any success doing this can you please post some pictures?

Are you asking about using a 1.2 meter offset dish?

sorry, I'm not sure what offset means. It has the 3 arms tripod mount.

Offset has the feed horn mounted close to the bottom of the dish.

A prime focus dish and an offset dish are two different animals so they use slightly different types of feeds to properly input the dishes received signals. A 1.2 meter dish would be "really small" for finding much C band signals.

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!
