Discussion in 'FTA / Non Small Dish Satellite Area' started by tylorert, Sep 7, 2016.
I got a free dish 1000.4 reflector and other parts. Could it be used for fta? Is it big enough?
It depends on what you want to receive, and how talented you are at jury rigging things. 1000.4 is designed for Ku circular polarity.
I am good at that stuff! i just want something to experement with
You need something bigger, especially in rain fade. The FTA satellites do not use the power Dish & Direct do. You may pick up something on KU, but there would be rainfade. For good KU reception, a 4-6 feet Dish is better. The LNBFs would have to be changed out anyway.
Ok i could change the lnbf. ANYTHING FOR FTA
The Dish LNBF is no good for satellites other than their own and Expressvue (which also used E* made equipment). Dish uses circular polarization. In any event there is no FTA on any of these satellites.
Even with a diffrent LNB? Like an avenger LNB?
And what is "rainfade"
What is an average LNB. Rather than asking here I would suggest you use google and read about FTA
Heavy rain, you will not get a signal.
