Hello everyone!

First topic here, first post, total n00b, so...sorry for the silly question coming your way!

I need to change this LNB to be an 8 way one. I understand there are at least a couple of different "brackets", mk3 and mk4. I am not too sure which one would be the right one in my case, so I would needsome guidance...Who's willing to shed some light on this for me? I don't want to find myself with an LNB I can't fit on the dish!

Thanks!

Welcome to Satellites UK,
One of our installers will hopefully advise you very soon there is a lot to choose from or maybe you can spot one with a similar Lnb bracket to yours ?

Thank you both guys! Really appreciated! Out of curiousity: so is mine a mk3 or a mk4? I can't say the difference honestly (forgive my dumbness!), and that LNB on amazon doesn't really say if it's mk3 or mk4 in the description
