If Boise's SD Locals come from the 72.5-deg satellite, which I think they do, then you need to keep that dish. The new AT9 5-LNB "sees" the 99, 101, 103, 110 and 119 satellites, but not 72.5-deg.

Just connect the cable from your 72.5-deg Locals dish to the "Flexport" input on the Zinwell WB68 multiswich.

This would be a great time to find out from D* whether the Slimeline is designed to accomodate an optional additional LNB assembly that integrates into it.
I doubt that it does. The dish's reflective/focal area would have to cover a very wide section of the sky to "see" all of the satellites from 72.5-deg to 119-deg W.

You don't want to use that old Zinwell with your new AT9 because it will not properly switch the new Ka-band LNBs (99-deg and 103-deg satellites). Any chance you could get the new multiswitch (Zinwell WB68) sooner?
