    Yes, it should be possible to combine dishes together. I'm in the middle of trying this now ....

    We know for sure that you can install two Ka/Ku AT9 5-LNB dishes at different locations, one aimed for 99/101/103 and the other aimed for 110/119, and then combine their signals. Information on how to do this in the thread referenced here.

    It can be done if you will use a 6X8 wide band multiswitch. Zinwell offers just such a switch that works great.

    Greg, perhaps you can review this thread
    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=62223
    and add your insights about whether our proposed scheme should work. I'll be doing more tests with my local installers on Monday. Thanks!
