Default Attempting to use C120 lnb with dish - complete fail...

Hi guys.
ive been trying to get a signal on a 2.4m dish, using a black pro twin lnb and adjustable feedhorn.

The plate that holds the lnb is too big for the feedhorn.

The neck of the feedhorn is 24.9cm and the mounting plate is 36.3cm so the feedhorn is smaller by 11.4cm

Does anyone know if you can get a converter so the feedhorn will fit?

That depends which satellite you are wanting to use. You can get most of the Sky channels (excluding UK PSB channels) in southern Spain on a 1.3m dish. You can get I907 on an 80cm dish.

We are based in Nonaspe, around 2 hours from Zaragoza and 3 hours from Barcelona.

im fairly sure we would be able to get signal - esp with the 2.4m dish that we have set up but it’s just the lnb set up is too small for the actual bracket on the dish.

im not sure if you can set an adapter to change the size.

also, my measurements are mm not cm!

All the measurements you gave are in cm or m. Please answer my question about which satellite you wish to use.

I'd suggest you contact via this forum "The Guy" who I think is based in Alicante and who is an expert in such matters.

Can you not make a plate from something (hard plastic/ally etc) to adapt the fittings to suit.
Bore size the issue ? then some plastic pipe cut down the middle to pack the LNB fitting tube to get to 11.3mm bigger.
As long as the LNB sits central then it will work.
