Unless you have a C-Band Extended LNB that covers the frequency range of 4500 - 4800 MHz you will not be able to receive any of the C-Band signals in the extended range that are the subject of this topic. General C-Band LNB's do not cover this frequency range, you need a model that overs the range.
Yes, as MB says an extended LNB required for the extended range, usually available from the USA or China...

Sorry but my reference to simple 22Khz switch will do the job of switching between low and High band this was on SCOPUS SMW Ku-Band Quad Multiband LNB he has for sale since I have a single feed and his LNB is dual feed High + Low . But on my corotor there is a Gardiner 44 Kelvin 3.7 - 4.2 Ghz which like you say does cover 4500-4800 Mhz , 30 years ago I would plug the C Band LNB into my Scanner via a DC blocker which would cover the IF freq 950 - 1450 Ghz and you could find some interesting things to listen to . I wonder whats on 4500 - 4800 as I see that SMW sell a C band LNB that does 3.600–4.800 GHz I hate to think of the price . Looking at my Corotor spec that is only good for 3.7 - 4.2 so I would need to make some changes .

Maybe a test for this new project...
"
TV TEM, an affiliate of TV Globo, has signed a multi-year contract with Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) for capacity on its EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite to distribute its programming within its concession region in the São Paulo state.

The partnership has enabled TV TEM to seamlessly migrate its feeds from traditional C-band (3.7 GHz to 4.2 GHz) to Planned C-band (4.5 GHz to 4.8 GHz) on the EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite, allowing for the clearing of the traditional C-band frequencies for 5G deployment in Brazil. TV TEM has the widest coverage area in the State of São Paulo with 318 municipalities within a region of 8.3 million inhabitants, around 49% of the population of the upstate of São Paulo State.

The operation took place under Eutelsat’s ‘Planned C-Band’ solution, developed to offer Brazilian broadcasters a simple procedure to adapt or replace equipment and repoint antennas to the orbital 65°W position, with some 300 sites completing the migration in less than 45 days.

Commenting on the contract, Rodrigo Campos, Managing Director of Eutelsat do Brasil, said the company is delighted to welcome TV TEM to EUTELSAT 65 West A. The firm's ‘Planned C-Band’ solution offers a seamless and cost-effective proposition for Brazilian broadcasters required to migrate their signals out of the lower end of the C-band spectrum, while offering them unparalleled coverage of the Brazilian market.

Ewerton Maciel, Technology Director of TV TEM, added that the company has a robust satellite operation with a diversity of transmitting sites and automatic power control to serve viewers demanding a premium service with the highest reception quality. Eutelsat has perfectly understood the regulatory and technological challenges of this migration, and TV TEM is pleased to rely on them as the company's Partners "
