    One of my installers started calling single LNBs "lollypops". I do NOT recommend using slang for technical parts, especially stupid slang like this.

    I always prefer LNB myself. However, if I'm in the presence of one who is not so technically versed, I've used the phrase "microphones with white caps on the end of them." That seems to have done the trick for me when getting the message across.
