Does anyone have a use for this feedhorn assembly? It was mounted on a 48" dish I rescued from the roof of an Amoco station that was being torn down.  If anyone wants it and is willing to pay postage from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, it is your.  If I am ever allowed to be on the roof again, I am also going to give away the 48" dish.

Probably a transmit/receive lnbf for their card transactions.

You can remove the mouth piece at the far left from the rest of the assembly at the smaller circular junction where the white mouth piece is bolted to the grey orthomode/filter section.
Then, bolt a C120 LNBF to the mouth piece, and you don't need the orthomode section or the BUC.
I would keep the feedhorn assembly with the dish because it is designed to match.

@ZBear If you do not going to use the feedhorn by yourself I would be happy get it. Actually I need only the white part (as it was mentioned by Captain_Kurtz. So, if you could take angle-grinder and make a cut along the red line and then send the left part (pointed by green arrow) to me than I would be happy. Of course I pay shipping and provide some beer money to you. DSCN0692 (Medium).jpg

You don't need an angle grinder for this job.  A right angle/offset screwdriver or mini wrenches should do the the job just fine.  Captain already mentioned above about loosening the fasteners to detach feedhorn (white part) from TX/RX block (grey part).  I think there should be about 8 screws/bolts to deal with.  I have a feedhorn very similar to this one.  Good luck!  The Eagle Aspen 170 KU is another option if you're looking for an LNB flange to receive both H and V polarities.   
As a side note, the dimensions on the Invacom C120 and Eagle Aspen 170 Ku are ever so slightly different.  For me, the Eagle Aspen mates perfectly on my Patriot feedhorn, whereas the C120 does not.  The C120 will work for me, I know because I had it on for a few weeks, and signal quality seemed to be just fine.  It just doesn't mate perfectly, that's all. I thought I'd share, FWIW.   I think Gibertini is one manufacturer that makes a feedhorn designed specifically for the C120.

Of course it is possible to unscrew  8 screws. But I also can use corresponding part with with 8 holes, for example to attach it to some LNB, that will make it flange LNB.

Okay.  I see what you want to do.  I saw a video on YT recently where guy was doing that.  Good Luck.[smile]

Rimants    Send me your address and I will send it to you when I can. I will unbolt it. I am having 5th surgery on my left foot tomorrow (10 so far on right). Removing 8th toe so far. Not sure how I will be getting around for a few days. I will send it cheapest method possible, probably USPS.  I will let you know what it costs me.  Bear

I guess it's just me but I'm not dealing with hassle of shipping it overseas.

Bear,

If you do work out something with RimaNTSS and you want to send it to me, I will ship it to him.  I ship overseas often, so no problem here.

Rick

I also often send/receive packages all around the world, including USA, never had any problems. But, if TS has some issues I am not insisting.
Thanks Rick for offering mediation help.

Rick. I will send it to you as soon as I can. I didn't want anything for the part and you have sent several things to me on your dime so I will cover the postage to you. Foot (both) is a little tender today.

Rick. Can you pm or email me the address you want the part sent to? I have it boxed up and almost ready to go. Taking the little screws out was half a bugger. I have about 500 allen wrenches and to find the right one.

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!
