I'm sure I read that a "triple" monoblock was on sale, or about to go on sale a few months ago, but having done a search, can't find any reference to it.
What I'm after is a triple monoblock, ie 13E, 16E and 19E.
Does such a thing exist or did I dream it?
it has been rumoured that this will go on sale for the last few years
but it never has
Thanks Echelon, at least I know I didn't dream it!
Worn out Dude
it was called the Horizon Pyramid lnb , or it would have been if it had ever been marketed!
as Ech indicated , promised for years but never materialised
It's shown here but as far as availability goes - who knows
You could always mail or phone them
Did give them a call and spoke with someone in their technical department. It was a product which was under development for quite some time but as additional funds were required to get the working prototype to a finished product level, they decided to shelve it. They revisit from time to time but apparently don't feel the market would be large enough to justify spending more money.
seems strange as you can now by a 3 degree twin monoblock for 16e and 19e , so thats two thirds of the job already done by somebody
and there are the 6 degree twins that do 13e and 19e ( or 5e and 1w )
The german market also has a 4.3 degree monoblock,
this is for their home market for astra 1 and 23e, why dont these companies want to make a lot of money and sell them to the whole of Europe ?
Theres a killing to made for the first company who makes it but their not interested.
I normaly watch channels on those 3 sats and quite frankly if I could get such a monoblock I would get rid of the motor on my 1m gibertini, also wouldn't keep wife up at night with noisey motor .
3 degree monoblock lnb.....
can be modified to get 13-16-19 degrees.
Line the dish up with 16e as its main focus, then cut off one side of the lnb bracket so the lnb can be swivelled through 180 degrees manually.
Us a nylon tie cord to hold the lnb tight and straight on the bracket, this turns the lnb upside down which brings the polarity back to normal for hotbird or astra 1 and W2.
Its a manual fix but if you can reach your dish it works well.
