    I'm not sure this story isn't a year old. Apsattv carried this before last year's Bathurst:

    I didn't consider more than one correct polarisation and did my skew line up on 12317.

    Have adjusted skew, which is very close to the setting required for IS19. Heavy overcast and very light drizzle.

    Yes, it's a prime focus with an appropriate Invacom prime LNB and feedhorn.

    Will get the big ladder out tomorrow and give it a tweak.

    Thanks, please don't go to any major trouble. Even if there is only data feeds there, 174 in particular, that's OK as I'm only looking at the carrier strength for alignment.

    Thanks. 180 should certainly get me close, then if there's anything scannable on 174, I can finish up there.

    Eutelsat 174 TPs?

    I'll soon be setting up a Ku 1.8m on a polar mount and Eutelsat 174 seems to be the closest to true north (1.6 degrees off), for setting up.
    There seems to be good coverage on the South Pacific...

    Hi Gavin,

    Cool. I have the Invercom C120 LNB and adjustable feedhorn. Looks like I'll make something to mount it myself.

    I assume when you say 2.3m dish, you mean the mesh dishes usually used...

    Hi Gavin,



    Yes, multistream is part of the S2 standard, but not all demodulator chips support all the features or modulations. Your ultraplus should be OK, as I see one NZ supplier advertising...

    No, the 9 mux is still DVB-S2. It is multistream though - maybe you need to manually add the stream ID on the Ultraplus? I have no experience with STBs. What has changed over the last month or two is...

    Although only 1.1m, I can recommend the Triax 110 if you decide to go that route. It was the closest to 1.2m I could find in NZ.

    No reason why they should. It's sold as a C band dish and the assembly sheet for it describes it as such, with an f/D = 0.385.

    Hi Gavin,
    I've recently picked up one of the same dishes very cheaply - new in box, and was intending on trying the same exercise :)

    As they're intended for C band, I've assumed the performance...
