    Hi guys I have a small problem.

    I am at location 31E,17S (Zimbabwe,Harare) I have the following equipment.

    1. FTA Decoder.
    2. 2.4m dish c-band pointing to BadrC 26E.
    3. 1.8m dish Ku-band pointing to Telstar 12 15W
    4. 0.60m dish Ku-band pointing to Pas7/10 68.5E

    Here is my problem how can I add additional lnbs on either of these dishs or better yet from my location how do I watch more than one satellite with one dish. I dont mind having a dish farm at home but the WIFE. Yeah my problem execly.

    hi mafutah,
    work out your sats of interest, those within 20 degrees of each other, and all receive either in ku - are best for offset dishes, and can combine three.
    with the centre sat having the sides sats within 5-30 degrees.
    that will make u pick all the three sats with one dish and three ku lnbs on an offset dish.
    the same can be done for c band but needs a 9ft or so dish.
    but the principle is working out your received sats, elevation and degrees from each other. then follows the practical.
    example is eutelsat w4 and intelsat 802 - i receive both on 1 dish 90cm 2ku lnbs.
    try it out
