    which feedhorn

    Ask friend to send you both, and after tests send one back. But, in 2 words, feedhorn #1 is for prime-focus dish, and feedhorn #2 is for an offset.

    which feedhorn

    Try both, and choose that one which performs better.

    Listen Up Batten down the hatches 2019/2020/2021

    In fact, we have such a heat wave for almost 1 month already. This summer is something special- the hottest summer in history. Need lots of beer to survive. Added one month graph of temps

    Listen Up Batten down the hatches 2019/2020/2021

    No problem with that. If I like it, you can like it as well :D Asked neighbors, almost all of them have some broken fruit-trees. Lots of big trees are broken here and there. But further, I have heard about flying roofs (that I would sure not like).

    Listen Up Batten down the hatches 2019/2020/2021

    Unfortunately, I was not at home when this happened. Neighbor said he did not see something like it before and was very afraid. All small stuff were flying all around. Wind broke the big brunch of the oak and demolished the greenhouse. Luckily, antenna survived (all of them). There are also lots...

    Just Sharing This Something useful for the garage/workshop

    I used 2 LED screens (they were going to scrap) to make the lights for the garage. Not a big deal, just needed to remove black LCD panels and apply proper power to the original LEDs inside the screens. Now I have 2 light sources ~60 and ~100 cm in diagonal, and they are almost free.

    Help Required threaded bolt that holds on motor to actuator arm.

    As @purplemarina has said, it is very easy to take M4 threaded bar, cut the proper length and use M4 nut to tighten. I have just done that with INOX M4 threaded rod. So, this method will surely cost much less than original bolt sent from the other place. @butchyboy , do not complicate simple...

    Help Required threaded bolt that holds on motor to actuator arm.

    Well, I have dug dipper into the issue. Removed bolts from 4 actuator motors. 2 of them have Mx95mm bolts, one has M4x85mm bolts and one has threaded rods with imperial thread (very similar to M5, but M5 nut does not fit). I suspect that @butchyboy needs M4x95mm bolt, which I can send. But...

    Help Required threaded bolt that holds on motor to actuator arm.

    I see now what bolts. I have several parts of the actuators lying around, so @butchyboy , if you wish I can send you some bolts or even whole actuator assembly.

    Help Required threaded bolt that holds on motor to actuator arm.

    Is that M6 or M8 thread? I am pretty sure it is easy to buy such a bolt. Not so difficult to make one as well.... even INOX.

    Multi LNB Set up on a Sky Dish

    Do not expect this dish to perform better than 1.2m dish, as it's working area is the same. In fact, "1.25m Gibertini" is just a name, and it is a company trick to have better sales.

    Advice Needed Best single LNB on a motorized 1m20 Channel Master ?

    It is hard to say. This is not standard feedhorn which only exists at your disposal. So, only you can give the answer whether such a feedhorn brings you positive reception results.

    @italy2006 Nice picture of your antenna. And how did you measure it 130 cm, from where to where?

    Advice Needed Best single LNB on a motorized 1m20 Channel Master ?

    How did you measure it? It is hard to say as you did not show any pictures of your antenna. But, if you wish to go "the feedhorn and flange LNB" way then you better make sure that the illumination angle of the feedhorn is matching the opening angle of the antenna.
