Tip: Improve dish signal reception with a funnel

Tip: Improve dish signal reception with a funnel
Dear Friends,
I always had an issue with some weak Dishtv transponders of NSS6 satellite.
The signal was not consistent and often there was picture freezing.
My dishes are installed in the home balcony itself to facilitate alignment and testing on my TVs.
Then I attached a plastic funnel to the mouth of the feed-horn of the LNB like the conical scalar ring my C-band dish has.
There was a considerable increase in signal quality and no outage as it happened before.

Using a Metal funnel will give better results.
Also make sure the smaller edge of funnel co-incides with the white plastic part of the LNB feed-horn mouth. Try it.

Yes I tried metal Conical Scalar Ring on my C-band LNBF. On Ku-band LNB, this plastic funnel works fine, so I did not put metal funnel on that.

The time taken for this experiment was less than 2 hours for cutting, fixing and taking screenshots and clicking pictures.
The difference in time for both snaps of signal screens was 1 hour.

Yes even after all Azimuth, Elevation and LNB Skew efforts, I got just 35 to 50% signals. Then after seeing an Invacomm LNB with a conical feed-horn, I tried this and it works great even now.

Also a similar metallic conical scalar ring is used for my C-band dishes.

Yes Motwaniji,
Signals in C-band Dish also increases by 10% to 15%.
