Yes, if the dish setup is well done with quality parts. Most mesh dishes are not the best choice for Ku signals. Here after getting several solid dishes I have put most of my mesh dishes into storage piles.

Remember that the input waveguide for Ku freqs is about 3/4 of an inch wide. Any focused sat signal which does not find its way into that small hole is just lost to the Ku lnb or lnbf. It requires a quality dish shape to focus "all" of the collected rf energy into that small 3/4 inch size hole.

The other point is to be able to reject all of the unwanted signals from other sat positions. There is no receiver which can make up for what is done poorly out at the dish.

-3w????   Huh.... On the east coast here and it is bending the dish to see 8w...Pretty low on the horizon....You on some massive mountain on the east coast just poking down at a huge elevation?

Cant get 8w anylonger here on the east coast...Built a privacy fence that blocks this.

Is that a typo Transponderman?

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!
