what is your favorite slang term for an LNB
you would be amazed at what terms customers use to describe LNBS
My favorite is "the eyes on the end of the dish."
I call it the "Head" of the dish.
I have always called it an LNB, but from now on they will be known as dohicky's
wow i'm surprised more people didn't say horns, everyone in Maine who tries to describe them says Horns :lol:
One of my installers started calling single LNBs "lollypops". I do NOT recommend using slang for technical parts, especially stupid slang like this.
I've had alot of customers call them "feeder horns".
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.
