KA Band Sat?

Post by Username » Sun Jun 04, 2017 4:05 pm

Hi
I am from Europa and want to get into the KA Band.
I read on a German Website here is no "Wideband" LNB at the moment.
I found some on Ebay but I dont know how Widebanig the are.
Does I need an special Dish?

You need to consider that the focal point (F/D) of any dish depends on it's shape and will therefore vary with different F/D.
The higher the frequency the more precise the dishes shae has to be to provide sufficient gain.
The feed horn of the LNB has to match the shape of the dishes F/D to obtain the max gain from the combination of both.

Therefore mixing Dish and LNB at random may or not work.
