just a quick question on converting my newly aquired bud to ku band. the existing c band lnb is fully functional and is cool. is it possible to pick up sats like e*7 on ku band with a bud? if so, can i use a c/ku prime focus lnb? any help on this matter is greatly appreciated and is better than the old trial and error method. thx in advance

Additionally, if you don't have the RIGHT BUD it won't do KU. BUDs have a variety of materials used in the dish. If it is a mesh dish without the proper size mesh it won't do KU. Ditto for perf material. Ditto for fiberglas dishes with embedded mesh. A solid metal dish will always work. IF you have the right dish you can get a combination c/ku feedhorn and get the best of both worlds, assuming the dish has a motor. I agree with James, there isn't much on E*7 that you could watch.
I ku band the holes need to be smaller than the lead in a #2 pencil. Very small.
