    For tracking, use frequency 12562 H 26657. http://www.lyngsat.com/intel10.html

    My preferred option for Christian channels is Thaicom 5 c band frequency 3640 H 28066 http://www.lyngsat.com/thai5.html

    Thank you guys. The reason I got addicted to FTA satellite was due to my quest for christian channels on PAS 7/10. Though outside of footprint, God gave the grace to us in Mauritius to get it.
    I put a separate 2m40 dish to get GOD TV off C-band PAS 10.It worked for sometimes then signal dropped. Though it was not GOD Africa but God Asia. I enjoyed it because I saw asian preachers . I'm so used with the Benny Hinn and ors. Later moving to Thaicom I got GOD Africa as they named it. Here no African preachers.
    To you my fellow christian brethren, how can a channel be named Africa with nothing african on it. To my sadness I moved to Apstar 2R this week to get GOD Asia.To my surprise there's nothing asian on it.
    We African may prefer westerners but Africa is the continent to watch in term of christianity.Isolated on the island of Mauritius we have no contact with mainland Africa. The only place I visited on mainland Africa is Nigeria end of last year . So PAS 10 has much more to offer if you want African stuff. I know no one is a good prophet in his own country

    The best combination i've seen is the ADL/Seapatriot feedhorn. You need to attached separate LNB for V and H polarisation but result is good.
    With the cheap models you have problem to adjust the C and Ku lNB independently. It may be sufficient for you with high signal levelfrom sat.






    The ku LNB is the small one in the middle. It can be replaced by a single C120 flanged Ku LNB at the circular flange for reception of both V and H pol. I hope to use this combination this year when Intelsat 10 will be replaced by Intelsat 20 @68.5E position

    Feel I should invest on this kind of ku/c band combination for the soon to come Intelsat 20.
    Are the c band lnbs without feedhorns still readily available in market, I had almost forgotten about them.
    Or is there one similar to this but can use c band lnbs with feedhorns?

    But beware of imitation. I tried one with similar look but with no good result
    Readily available: Not sure but certainly available. Try ebay....I collect all unused ones where I can find them....old VSAT

    Default Best C+Ku LNB

    Ranksat, Patmos, Cogil,
    Three years ago I purchased Strong’s SRT L972 combined C+Ku band LNB at Nairobi, for use on Intelsat 10. It worked marvelous for both C and Ku on a Eurostar 6ft dish without complicated skewing. I doubt if it is still available here. Check the following page for details: _h**p://www.strong-technologies.com/frmProdDetails.aspx?id=250_ . You can download specifications / product catalogue on that site. It is very reliable and I still use it to this day.

    Good thoughts there my brother; I like African Xtian channels like OH TV which has been going from bird to bird. Honestly it is one of the best Africa has offered. It has a somewhat balanced menu, combining entertainment and Christianity. Loveworld has a good look but you might think that the pastor is Jesus! here's too much about him than Him; Raphsody than the Bible. Other channels have no control on the sound and picture quality, rendering then rather unacceptable. Shouting is the norm of these brethren! I can contentedly watch God TV, CTV, sometimes Hope and 3ABN. 3ABN has good stuff for children. I miss another one am forgrtting which used to come from South Africa with a strong SDA position from a scholarly point of view. YOU WOULD BE SHAKEN IF YOU'RE NOT SURE OF YOUR ANCHOR.

    I have a problem with christians who think that the only way one can preach is by preaching, and forgeting the world of creativity. Music, drama, documentaries, debates, testmonies, stories... are all availablle media to preach. I used to work with a christian radio station that would include secular music on their menu and statistics have it that the callers during that time were more of the lost than the found.

    Then come the radios; my best is TWR coz of Charles R. Swindoll- a Havard literary graduate who speaks to the "modern Greek". I haven't been to PAS7/10 in a long time so I might be out of touch, but I am soon facing her especially since God TV is back. Thats my small observation!
