My 1st suggestion would be if there are 2 coax running to dish now buy 4 short manufactured cables and mount the 2 SW21's on the dish and connect the 2nd LNB and you are ready to go.

Otherwise you will be spending more on the tools for compression fittings, etc.

I suggest you just read the articles, and decide how far you want to go on this, many people have many ways of coming up with similar, or acceptable results.

Crimp connectors were the industry standard at one time, and are fine indoors, and outdoors if you keep an eye on them for moisture issues.
See http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=104308
for lots of ideas.
I have even used twist-on connectors outdoors and keep some as emergency repairs when I have no tools around.
Don't use any silicon sealant on connections as it has very corrosive properties to prevent mould from developing unless it is a type approved for electrical connections. Use a good electrical tape like scotch super 88 or something similar.
