Just to follow up on my previous post, where I wanted to experiment a little with C-Band on a 90 cm Ku dish.
Dish 1 Ku (82, 85, Galaxy 17 (91) and 97 (RTP, AD Sport and C&W radio) all on one dish -- strong signals and TP for everything that I need.
Dish 2 Ku (same 90 cm) -- decided that I wanted to keep SES2 because of LPB and Patient Ch. Information -- so my experimentation with C-Band would be very, very limited.
For the main signal on dish 2, I added a C-Band with CS Ring. Located a TP within 5 minutes and fine-tuned it as best as I could. The quality moves from 47 to 56 for the Por.Rico mux (5 stations and one blank / scrambled -- #7). I think mine just say Ch 1,2,4,5,6, and 7. Enjoyed watching Shark Tank last night. Quality even with 15 mile winds today is still averaging 50.
Sometimes pixels appear, but very steady picture overall. This is with no winds and all clear (no rain affect). May keep for a while and enjoy. I guess for me, this was "success", although I respect others very much who have posted that dishes that small were never meant for C-Band. I tried.
I also found another KU signal to the left of SES2 (maybe 83 degrees west). I will need to fine tune when the winds die down here.
