I'll have a root round in my spares box because I think I may have one. However the supplier in France that I use stocks them....

I apologise for the low-keyness of my question,but:why would we want a sourceless LNB(LNB sans source),when so many have one?
And can this be profitable when using an offset dish,
or is this especially suited to prime focus dishes? just wondering.
Concretely,how could I use a Source Ku 40mm Laminas on my offset dish?
Would that provide a stronger signal?

hi - i will be conducting an experiment with my Laminas to see if any gains can be made over a standard setup.

i am going to be trying a Channel Master, a Gibertini and possibly a Laminas feedhorn on my Laminas 1.2m

i will be trying different LNB positions (focused on dish face), and then different feed horns, just to see if there is any improvement to be made over the standard holder and a LNBF.

i will also, be trying a standard universal Smart Titanium LNB converted to fit the c120 feedhorns and report back

Hi,and thank you for such a quick answer!
I quite like the looks of the Source Ku 40mm Laminas ,sturdy and shiny at the same time!
Have a nice and sunny day!
