Yes, but as far as I know it is not supporting Smith-Charts which is IMHO a big drawback
DD1US , You are absolutely right Matthias, but he is very handy as an aid to make a feeder
As Martin also wrote, "Habe auch gute Erfahrungen mit diesem VNA gemacht ..." I also have good experiences with this VNA
A few pictures of the VNA while testing my feeder
DD0KP Hi Heiner
I read the article about this possibility but thank you for mentioning it.
The power supply for feeding the LNB is no problem.
I made a Bais-T with the possibility to switch between 12V and 18V and it works great.
The original question was whether it would be wise to supply the LNB with voltage 24/7.
Given the answer I leave it as it is and as long as the LNB continues to work.
Attached some photos of the Bais-T i have made

73's and tnx for reply
The reason for this question was that I still have to make a few minor modifications in the transverter housing.
And whether I would also supply the LNB with voltage from the transverter power supply
which is not always on.
So I think it is indeed wise to supply the LNB with power separately, and leave it 24/7 on
A lot is being written about modifying various LNBs
But I have, maybe a stupid beginner question,
about the practical use of the LNB.
Since 2 months I have had a dual band patch feed
,with a TXCO modified Otagon LNB,
and I wonder what is wisdom
constantly provide the LNB with voltage
or is not that special necessary
I know that some commercial sat receivers keep the
voltage on the LNB in standby mode and others don't?
Does anyone have a tip in this ??
PA3FBX , Benno
I have sent you an email to the email address which is known on QRZ.com, did you receive it / read it?
Received no response so far, Is this email address still correct?
If not, send a correct address to my email address which you can find at QRZ.com
on7kec , Tnx Luc, this version works much better
Also saw this signal today (25-10-19 at 11:00 UTC)
but also have no idea what kind of mode this is
It is still not very clear to see in your screenshot what it is.
And I assume you are familiar with the signal from SSTV and KG-STV
So I suspect that it is an EasyPal signal. (high resoluton SSTV)
R0AU can be seen regularly in this mode around the displayed frequency in your screenshot.
Hope this wil help
When did you order the PA? ... I have already emailed SG-LAB several times but I don't get an answer ... And the website still says "coming soon"
