    are you looking for the lnb, the dish or the feed?
    please expand your question, and location might help.

    It might be worth considering a larger dish, if you intend going into C-band. while your small dish might well be usable, there are other factores that need to be considerd when using OFF-set dishes for C-band.
    Firstly the use of an OFF-set Scalar ring really is needed, as you would not consider using an off-set LNB on a prime focus dish, due to loss of signal, and poor performance, the same is true in reverse.

    In northern Europe, Finland, etc, C-band off-sets are the norm due to the heavy snow falls experanced, so it follows that off-set scalar rings are available, as are heated dishes. The problem is in area's where there not needed or the norm, they tend to be expencive, as with us in Australia, I have one here and I did not get a lot of change out of $500 aus for the thing, But they do work, as you would expect.
    So it might be considerably more practicial , if your in Spain or there-abouts , to consider a 1.8 or 2.4 solid prime focus dish.
