Yes, it should be possible to combine dishes together. I'm in the middle of trying this now ....

We know for sure that you can install two Ka/Ku AT9 5-LNB dishes at different locations, one aimed for 99/101/103 and the other aimed for 110/119, and then combine their signals. Information on how to do this in the thread referenced here.

It can be done if you will use a 6X8 wide band multiswitch. Zinwell offers just such a switch that works great.

Greg, perhaps you can review this thread

and add your insights about whether our proposed scheme should work. I'll be doing more tests with my local installers on Monday. Thanks!
