I need a new KU LNB!

I GOOGLED this and now I know why LNB is the same as COKE! Or as us old folks know, it  became a short name for  Coca-Cola! Eventually any cola was called a coke!

The last time I needed a Ku LNB I just called Skyvision and ordered one, no problem.

I got what was to me just a regular Ku LNB that fit my C-KU band feedhorn!

WOW! Google Ku LNB and all you see are Ku LNBFs!

I then came back to Ricks site only to find a different bolt pattern on his Ku LNB!

I did more Google searching and learned that my old bolt pattern seems to be obsolete!

Instead of a flange at the bottom, they now are square with no flange!

What now? Is an adapter available or will the new LNBs fit my old feedhorn?

Hi Zack,

Can you provide a picture of your LNB?  I don't remember any Ku LNB with a different bolt pattern that what is currently out.

We have the 770SLKU Eagle Aspen for 45.00 or the 4106A Norsat for 99.00 and just got in some Norsat PLL Ku LNB's the 1207HA for 185.00.  They all are the same size for screwing (or small bolts) onto the Ku Wave Guide.

Thanks,

Rick

Rick, I wish I could send a picture! It is long, flat and skinny! And now that I have taken the time to lower the dish to look at it again, I see by looking under the bottom of it, that it does have a square base! Held in by four bolts and no nuts!

Thinking back 25 years, I bought a c-ku feedhorn from Skyvision, it was a reduced price catalog return, and that Ku lnb was left on it by the former owner!  

I mainly just want to be able to receive Norby TV if I can.

Zack, 

I don't know if any of the Retro channels are broadcasting the Norby TV show.  We have many members and someone may have seen it, so will have to see if anyone knows if it is still on and if so, where.  Most of the Retro TV stations are on C-Band, but COZI TV is on Ku.

Long flat and skinny? Something like this?
Those were good LNBs - sorry to hear that it died.

Now we are guessing, much easier would be if @Zack take and post couple of pictures. I think he was meant LNBs like those IMG_20181224_172118 (Large).jpg

From that I understood he is looking for another LNB with square flange and possible adapter to go from square to round. Anyway, clarification and pictures needed.

Sounds to me like he has a C/Ku Feed horn and now after he was able to get another look at it, it is just a normal Ku LNB Bolt pattern with 4 bolts / screws that mount it.  My older Ku LNB's used to be around 5 to 6 inches long, where the 4106A Norsat is only about 3 inches long.  The new PLL 1207HA Norsat Ku LNB's I just started stocking are about 5 inches long.

So depending on what the budget is, the Eagle Aspen's at 45.00 still work good, but not as good as the 4106A for 99.00.  The extra for the Norsat is worth it for most of us.

Thanks as always for everyone always so willing to help!  Best group of folks around in my humble opinion!  😉

Zack,

Now that is pretty funny.  So is it Norby or Orby?  Appears to be Orbytv.  Does anyone know what satellite that Orby is using?

I had no idea what Norby was, so I did an internet search and this is from wikipedia:

Norby is an American sitcom television series that aired from January 5 until April 6, 1955 on NBC. This was one of the first regular weekly series broadcast by NBC in its new all-electronic compatible color system, which had been approved by the FCC in 1953. Norby starred veteran film actor David Wayne, and was created by writer David Swift, then best known as the creator of the popular sitcom Mister PeepersEastman Kodak was the program's sponsor, and it was filmed in Eastmancolor. The series ended when Kodak pulled its sponsorship due to the high costs of filming Norby in color.

Here is the link for anyone wanting to learn even more about it:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norby_(TV_series)

Rick, Orby TV is using a few transponders on the Ku side of 117W. Linear polarity, "standard" 11.7-12.2 frequency range for the LNBF.

If he really wants Orby TV, then for several reasons he is better off with a separate fixed Ku dish and LNBF for that, which of course you also sell.

(A functioning Ku LNB on the motorized dish is also very nice to have.)

Sorry Rick!

I should not have put that N in there were I should not have!

It comes from poor typing skills and I guess a temporary brain fart!

Zack,  

No problem at all.  I thought it was really funny how I did a search and actually found a TV show that I had never heard of.  Maybe I am not as old as I thought!  😉

We don't worry about typing or getting everything correct here.  We just enjoy sharing the excitement and fun of the hobby!

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!
