A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Possibly to do with the news of subscriber take up, or not, but Ka Band LNBs for the 9E frequency band - 19.7-20.2 GHz are now being sold off at about £30 delivered.


Badged Triax, these are the INVERTO twin LNB, specification below

My point was the pricing has been reduced by approximately 50% in the past week, so things are definitely afoot with SaorSat, or possibly the use of Ka on 9E.

Could very well be checked the signal on my 2.4m and 1.2m dish on saorsat,and the signal is still the same.The parameters of the change last week have had no effect here signal wise.

Thinking outside the box, the terrestrial transmitter changes in Ireland were completed at the end of June, to comply with the 700MHz selloff.


SaorView may now be available to 100% of the local poulation, making SaorSat redundant.

Your issue won't be the LNBs but the metalwork on the reflector(s) of the Wavefrontier dish.

I read something about the dual reflectors playing havoc with circular polarisation.
Thats correct , LHC and RHC will be changed .
This happened to me also with C band circ. on my Fibo gregorian
