You may need to align everything right, that is focus, elevation, azimuth, and polarization (LNB/feed horn rotation).    Did you adjust all these?

 

Was the old dish a mesh?    I used to use a mesh, generally performance not as good as solid dish designs.

Team,

 

We replaced our satellite dish from 10ft to 12ft (STI-12 3.8 meter mesh Satellite Prime) to be 2 degree compliant.  Unfortunately our signal has decreased rather increase as we expected.

 

We purchased a PRIE C-Band feed horn and Norsat PLL LNB C3220F but we could not get a signal to use.  We installed the old LNB and have a signal but not as strong as originally with the 10 mesh dish.

 

We are not sure if the LNB is bad or not compatible with the AMR and XDS-PRO4R.

 

What LNB has your radio stations chosen to use?  Is the LNB C3220F a good choice?

 

Thanks for any input you can give us,

Don Prentice
