Does anyone know what the technicall differences are between the two Zinwell 6x8 switches?

The 6802 and the WB68?


I was under the impression that the WB68 was the only one that can work with the A9 dish.... well... just had my install yesterday and the 6802 was installed, and it is working perfectly...

So any ideas? As in, when we see something on Sat #5 will I start to have a problem?

I'll bet it's just that the components on the WB68 are spec'ed and tested to handle a wider frequency range. In that case, the majority of 6802s would probably work but there would be a higher failure rate.

The frequency should be from 250 to 2150 if I recall.

I had the WB68 installed this past monday. I didn't even know there was a second to choose from. In the short time of this needed requirement I've only heard of the WB68. Which doesn't mean anything, just a statement. If it can receive the needed frequency ranges, It should be O.K.

Zinwell is phasing out the SAM-6802 in favor of the WB-68. Being the "6802" is not wideband some signal issues may crop up. ( buy hey, if it works, it works, knock wood! )

Pesumably the SAM-6802 is band-pass/high-pass filtered to prevent interferance to diplexed terrestrial signals making problems for 99WL Ka Lo when it comes.
