World Direct Dish for KA/KU
Posted 26 July 2011 - 12:23 AM
before, I thought I'd give it a go. Everything is stock on this World
Direct Dish. I just used a couple of wood screws to attach the SL3 lnb to
the 2"x4" block which is attached to the arm with a small lag bolt. The
distance from the middle of the reflector to the middle of the lnb "eye" is
18.25". Roughly the same location of the 95 linear lnb. 101 signals were
93 to 100, 99 signals were 78 to 88, 103 signals were 76 to 92. This is
with just about 2 minutes worth of adjustments/aiming and a not so plumb
tripod (I just eyeballed it). What surprised me was the fact that the KA
signals were not as sensitive as they usually are. I'm certain the signals
can be improved with more adjustments and a proper mast (the one I used was
1-5/8" OD, not an exact fit for this dish) that's plumb. Thanks to Doctor J,
Matt9876 and Davenlr for the inspiration. Your prior experiments have made me want to tinker with this.

Cool. How did you attach the 95 linear lnb to the 99/101/103/110/119 cluster?
Regular 1m offset FTA dish would cover all sats - 95/99/101/103/110/119. Tested. Works.
