    Does anyone have a link to a map of the frequencies that are output from the LNB for the 18x20, Ka/Ku 3 LNB, and SWiM LNB?

    I saw a map once showing the 8 100Mhz channels for SWM and other frequencies used.

    Note that in addition to the 2.3MHz control signal, SWiM also has a very hot DECA band centered at 550MHz that may cook devices that aren't prepared for it.

    Los...
    Cook ??? :confused:

    Granted the comparatively strong (to the satellite SWiM signal) DECA signal may interfere with other non-DECA compliant SWiM equipment without the appropriate placement of BSFs.

    But cook? :nono:

    Nonsense. More FUD from you. :nono2:

    You can have SWiM with out decas. Lots of setups like that out there. Nothing is being "cooked".

    SWiM does not need or equal deca.
    Deca use does require SWiM.

    You speak as if no one need worry their pretty little heads about DECA signals... ever. There are also lots of setups with DECA out there and many more on the way. Where present, the DECA signal is relatively high powered.

    Unless the OP is trying to justify using really crappy cable, my assumption is that they are contemplating using some portion of the cable bandwidth for "alternative" purposes.

    There's a difference between FUD and a simple caution.

    Too bad your comments are normally the former and not the later.

    The OP asked about SWiM. Posts #2 & #3 answered the question. You brought the deca fud into the conversation. There is a difference between caution and running around yelling "the sky is falling" like some knowledgeable authority on the matter. :nono2:
