Global Invacom SNF-031 LNB - PLL?

Post by G4GHD » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:26 pm

I'm using an old Global Invacom SNF-031 C120 Single Universal LNB on my 1.2M dish, I'm pretty sure it's PLL type, but can't find a spec. sheet stating so. Given that I'm not having any problems with SR1000 and over signals on Es'hail-2 but yet to receive anything below that rate, I'm beginning to wonder if that could be the cause.

It is definitely a DRO LNB and not a PLL

Many thanks.

Any recommendations on a C120 flange PLL LNB?

I do not know of any C125 PLL LNBs. I have a C120 channel master horn on my 1.2m dish.

I used an octagon and a surplus c120 horn. I cut the horn off the octagon and the flange off the old horn. Joined the LNB and Flange.

Ah, I was hoping there'd be a PLL version, not sure my metalwork skills are up to your solution.

Metalwork skills? A hacksaw, areldite and a hose clamp for a bit of mechanical reinforcement?

I didn't realise you'd simply glued them together, doesn't sound too difficult then...
