I mounted my RX-TX (Diavolo Twin LNB and POTY) combination in my 80cm offset dish today.
The RX signal strength of the CW beacon with that RX-TX combination is about -84 db.
The RX signal strength with just the RX LNB mounted is about -76db at the CW beacon. So there is a loss from about 6-7 db with the POTY mounted.
Unfortunately mechanical wise I can not push the 10GHz feedhorn more further to the back due to the LNB mount.
Is anybody having the same issue and how did you overcome that signal loss?
- Different LNB mount?
Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
