Hello, I'm trying to install a c band lnbf on an old elliptical dtv dish.
I am trying to lock on to 103w sat. I jerry rigged the lnbf to the arm
The best I could. Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't use any Ku [Ka] reflectors for C-band; find 2-3m/7-10' one, look around, some ppl (who didn't toss it yet) will give it to you for free, means you should dismantle it

Yes, I even though C band satellites have dramatically increased power output over the years, you still need a minimum of a 6 foot dish to receive the stronger ones, and at least a 10 foot to receive the HD channels using the higher bitrate formats. At best, you would have better luck putting a KU band LNB on that dish, and using it for wild feeds and sports feeds from the KU side of the satellites.
