Since I'm not completely satisfied with my C band installation (Usual double LNB out of primary focus) I was thinking to try to use a corotor on my laminas AS1800.
I searched on the net, but I can't find much information.

So I'm asking you guys, as long as I put a conical ring on the corotor, will it work on my offset dish. Signal loss on KU band will be too much?
(BTW, I soon will be a lucky owner of dreambox positioner, so yes, I will be able to control the corotor)

Thanks,
John

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

A co-rotor has both Ku and C band at one focus.

Perhaps you have a bullseye ?

I was refering to your reply : "Invert..."
I thought you meant 'invert the LNBs'.
Forgive me but as you can imagine english is not my mother-tongue so maybe i misunderstood what you said.
