Installed C-band LNB on Fibo120 today. There are several Putin's propaganda channels, almost all of them, of course, FTA. P1300898 (Large).JPG Screen_35 May. 02 14.10.jpg Screen_35 May. 02 14.07.jpg

Yes, this is a very strong satellite and is the best one to try C-band on even on a small dish.

Maybe it is need for some kind of rings but there is not enough place for them. Yes, this experience with C-band was first and last (not so interesting).... and I already removed C-band LNB and put back IBU adopted to Fibo feedhorn by you.
