    Post Please Help Me:- How fix C band LNB ??


    Dear friends...

    Anybody explain me? How to fix C band dish? There is any different between KU Band and C Band (for Installation & Satellite finding). I can fix Ku band. But still now I didn't try C band dish.

    Questions:
    1. How to fix C band Dish?
    2. What is the LNB Frequency ?
    3. How to find C band Satellite ? (any different between KU Band and C Band)

    Please explain me....

    Smile C & ku band

    There are only 2 major frequencies for delivering satellite TV programming
    C band delivers frequencies from 3.70 GHz to 4.20 GHz. The dish size required is 6 ft. to 10 ft. depending where you live , and if you are going to track all the satellites or just sitting your dish on one satellite. C band Big dishes can receive both C band and Ku band signals using a feed horn that will accept both Lnb's.
    Ku band delivers frequencies from 11.70 GHz to 12.50 GHz. The dish size required is 18 in. to 36 in... Depending where you live , and if you are going to track all the satellites or just station your dish on one sat. Ku band dishes cannot receive C Band signals unless they are designed for it and are usually very large and the dishes are not for the average homeowner.

    The best of both types is C Band, ( 5150) Lower frequencies pass through bad weather easier than higher frequencies. All Cable Companies and DSS providers acquire most of their signals by C Band. Just like with cordless phones, a 900 MHz phone will penetrate through your walls easier than a 2.4 GHz phone. 2.4 GHz. Phones do have a better range in distance in the open air but the phone base with the antenna is always in the house and the walls in your house will slow down the signal. The 900 MHz. phones will penetrate much easier but you will not have a farther distance.

    Twin LNB's that's C & ku which will switch automatically are in the market, you can install this LNB just like common installation or you can get one c band LNB and one Ku LNB and use dis Q switch. Regards

    There won't be any difference in finding the satellites. For the C band the frequency would be in 3.4 - 4.2 Ghz. The LO frequency of the LNB would be 5150mhz for new lnbs.

    hi gregory,,,its nice to see members actually answer questions instead of just refering someone to search the forum or be redirected to a previous thread,when a direct answer is possible,,yes,sometimes that is a good option for more advanced readers (NOTE* I DO APPRECIATE ALL MEMBERS taking time to answer posts and post links for me),but for newbies,,u can get an overload of information that u dont really understand.
    your answer was informative and direct ,,and able to understand for newbies.
    keep up the good work bro.
    cheers,,,dave

    Brother Gregory's answer is perfect for u but I'll add my comment,hope will help u anyway.

    First u should setting up the C Band dish and the Lnb.Be careful the LNB situation is very important for ur tracking a bird.Then put the LNB frequency to 5150 in ur receiver setting.Then choose a bird which should be situate in the middle of ur location.Example I'm in south east asia and Asiasat 2 is the middle one for me and has the strongest signal.Then choose a strongest TP from the Sat and try to adjust the dish.

    It's the easy way for u to start the lessons.But in this tunning of satellite the experiment will make u perfect.When I tuned 20 satellites with my 8 feet dish in my first ever time , I took 2 , 3 days to get all satellites but nowadays I can tune all these birds within 20 minutes.... That's mean my own experimental make me the answer.


    Good Luck.
