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

DBS Satellites (such as E7) are not in the usual FSS KU band and are circular polarized instead of H/V. A normal LNB isn't going to work very well.

Which band of ku? DBS isn't standard ku ...
