    Just make a new bracket, it's not really difficult to do - most people with limited skills/tools could do this easily. If it's outside your capabilities - order a new dish, they are relatively cheap.

    yes it may well be different , so may need further adjustments or not work at all for your dish

    there is also a possibility that it may be round , or rectangular , or a different fitting size for the arm it came from

    always worth a try, but obtaining a manufacturers replacement would be better if its a well known make of dish

    Can you post a picture of the broken one,

    I have successfully repaired ones where the hinge side of the clamp has broken. Fat cable ties often work but but don't encircle the LNB neck with metal, wire or the like as that can lower the gain.

    and measure the dish arm where the lnb is fitted , saying if it is round (and give the outside diameter) or rectangular (give the outer dimensions too)

    post those details along with pictures of the lnb , the arm and the dish itself , the adjustment mechanism can help to identify the make of dish too so a picture of the rear of the dish or side on can also help in your quest
