    Hi im new to the forum ,can anybody tell me what lnb frequencies are in use where you are?
    ,im in spain and having problems finding a suitable lnb to recieve some local rebroadcast signals ive tried a universal lnb and it only recieves some signals ,i borrowed the correct lnb from a neibour and it works fine with my dish and reciever,but his lnb has no name or markings and all the local sat shops cant help ive been told the LO freqency is lower possibly 9.54ghz .most universal types have two LO frequencies of 9.75 and 10.60ghz :confused:
    just wondered what lnbs you use cheers

    Nope, we are using separate FSS linear LNBFs [11.7-12.2, LOF=10.75] and circular [12.2-12.7, LOF= 11.25].

    Neither. Each particular tpn/sat polarization require ONE type of LNBF.

    I would contact that provider or talk to ppl who are using the equipment to check labels on LNBF, setting in receivers, etc.
